Retrospective views on our planet's future
PAGES 1st Young Scientist Meeting (YSM) was held from 6-7 July 2009 at Oregon State University in Corvallis, USA. PAGES 3rd Open Science Meeting was held directly after, from 8-11 July.
The YSM proceedings were published online on 12 April 2010 in the open-access IOP Conference Series: Earth and Environmental Science, Volume 9.
Papers cover the PAGES Science Foci/Themes:
- Reconstruction and Understanding Climate Forcings and Feedbacks (PAGES Focus 1)
- Regional and Global-scale Earth System Dynamics (PAGES Foci 2 and 3)
- Past Human-Climate-Ecosystem Interactions (PAGES Focus4)
- Improving and Understanding Paleoscientific Methods (PAGES Cross-Cutting Themes 1-3)
ABSTRACT SUBMISSION & ONLINE REGISTRATION ARE CLOSED
The aim of the YSM is to support the development of young paleoscientists by providing the opportunity to advance their scientific skills and to build international networks among colleagues at a similar career level, as well as with leading senior scientists and program representatives.
The YSM is open on a competitive basis to approx. 70 outstanding early-career researchers who meet the following criteria:
Usually under 35
– Career status
PhD students: Usually in the latter stages of their degree
Post-PhD: Usually within 5 years of completing their degree
– Scientific scope
Paleoscientists (data-based or modelers) or global change scientists with a strong, proven interest in paleoscience
