This study includes data compiled by SISAL (Speleothem Isotopes Synthesis and Analysis), a working group of the Past Global Changes (PAGES) project. PAGES received support from the Swiss Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The project is in part inspired by discussions at the SISAL 4th workshop: Exploiting the SISALv2 database for evaluating climate processes, Xi'an, China, 14–18 October 2019.

The PAGES working group CoralHydro2k was formed in 2017 to investigate the variability of temperature and δ18Osw in the surface ocean during the past 2,000 years.
This article examines new instrumentation and growing modeling needs in the Earth sciences are driving a renewed effort to compile and curate seawater oxygen isotope data in a centralized, accessible database.
Future studies should also work on continuing to expand the database. In particular, this analysis would not have been possible without the community databases such as the SISAL database of speleothem oxygen and carbon isotope composition, which contained numerous annually laminated stalagmites. Future studies should also work on continuing to expand the database.
This paper benefited from insights from a constantly varying past of the Past Global Changes (PAGES) working group “Climate Variability Across Scales” (CVAS).

This document aims to define the Strategy and Research Plan for the PAGES Floods Working Group (FWG) for the coming years. It was created following the 2016 "Cross community workshop on past flood variability" workshop in Grenoble, France, and the FWG Annual Meeting in Zaragoza, Spain, in 2017.
