Arctic Holocene paleoclimate synthesis - a PAGES endorsed project

Darrell S. KAUFMAN and the Arctic Holocene Transitions Project


The Arctic Holocene Transitions project is an international community-based effort to systematically review available evidence of the spatial and temporal pattern of climatic changes across the Arctic during the Holocene. In 2014, regional and proxy experts released a major compilation of published proxy climate time series from Arctic (north of 58° latitude) lake sediment, marine sediment, glacier ice, and other sources (Climate of the Past 10:1605). Regional teams then compared the dataset with other available paleoenvironmental evidence to reveal the most prominent trends represented by a large variety of paleo evidence
