PAGES 2k session at 'Our Common Future Under Climate Change', Paris, 7-10 July 2015


This conference is the largest forum for the scientific community to come together ahead of the COP21 of the UNFCCC in December 2015. It will address climate change in the broader context of global change, with four overarching objectives:

  • provide state-of-the-art scientific knowledge on climate change, one year after the release of IPCC AR5: physical basis of climate change, impacts, vulnerability, storylines and scenarios
  • explore a wide range of pathways combining climate change mitigation and adaptation
  • assess the potential for evidence-based solutions to climate change challenges 
  • contribute to a science-society dialogue

Paleoclimate documentary 'Taking Earth’s Temperature' for teachers

'Taking Earth's Temperature: Delving into Climate's Past' is an hour-long documentary showcasing scientific discoveries in paleoclimate research. Made by filmmakers at Northern Arizona University's IDEA Lab, it features contributions from many PAGES-affiliated scientists, including the PAGES 2k network. The broadcast schedule, short preview and DVD are available at: Teachers can register on this website for free access to the film and a lesson plan

Analysis of bicentennial-resolution paleoclimate data

A representative global bicentennial-resolution sea surface temperature composite (s.d. units) spanning the past 2000 years. The composite shows a cooling trend insensitive to possible biases in the input dataset. Global SST composite and model simulation comparisons suggest that the cooling trend results from volcanic and/or land use forcingIn review, Nature Geoscience

Analysis of annual-resolution paleoclimate data

 hr paper

A validated composite-plus-scale sea surface temperature (SST) reconstruction of tropical ocean regions. Results suggest warming in all basins began in the early 19th century, consistent with PMIP3 simulations; further analysis suggests the marine response to volcanic forcing is not ENSO-like, but is distinguished by cooling in the western tropical Pacific.
