The PAGES 2k project is accelerating on multiple fronts. Besides the very active regional groups, several trans-regional projects are busy developing synthesis products focusing on research questions that cut across regions.
The 2k Network is larger than ever (with close to 600 mailing lists subscribers), prominent at meetings (e.g. upcoming sessions at AGU and EGU), and in the media.
For the 1st Ocean2k workshop over a dozen proposals were received involving several general research themes centered on database/methods, observation-simulation comparisons, salinity reconstructions; and tropical, Mediterranean and North Atlantic dynamics.
All are expected to be supported and discussed in-person by their representatives in Barcelona (6-8 Oct 2015).
More information coming soon about the organization and planning for this workshop.
