The 2k network poses key questions
- what did the main patterns and modes of climate variability on sub-decadal to orbital timescales look and operate like?
- how do climate variability and extreme events relate to the important primary forcing factors, namely orbital, solar and volcanic?
- what feedbacks operated to modulate the climate response?
The 2k network has a number of trans-regional projects
Chris Turney, Darrell Kaufman, Hugues Goosse, Michael Evans and Lucien von Gunten (PAGES IPO) will coordinate the network
