The first priority of the 2k consortium is the generation of temperature reconstructions for each of the nine 2k regions. IPCC showed interest in this effort and encouraged the 2k consortium to prepare a synthesis paper in time for potential use in AR5 (i.e. submission before 20 July 2012). To meet this deadline, the 2k groups have made a tremendous effort during the last months to collect temperature data and produce new multi-proxy regional temperature series using state-of-the-art reconstruction methods.

As small writing team will meet in Bern to assemble those reconstructions and prepare a manuscript draft. The paper will be reviewed and authored by all 2k members under the pseudonym “PAGES 2k consortium” and submitted to a scientific journal.
