Congratulations to members of the Past Interglacials (PIGS) working group for publishing their synthesis paper in Reviews of Geophysics last month.
"Interglacials of the last 800,000 years" explores the similarities and differences between 11 interglacials - an extensive undertaking.
An editorial piece from Eos last week, titled "Insights on Climate Systems from Interglacials", discusses why the topic is so important right now.
PIGS was an active PAGES working group from 2008 to 2015. The group has now transformed into QUIGS - the PAGES-PMIP working group on Quaternary Interglacials.
