The fourth phase of the PAGES 2k Network
The goals of Phase 4 (2022-2025) are:
1. Reconstruct spatial and temporal hydroclimate variability.
2. Use Earth system models to develop mechanistic understanding of Common Era hydroclimate & use reconstructions as model assessment tools.
3. Develop tools and practices to maximize interoperability of 2k data products.
4. Translate the science into evidence-based policy outcomes.
