16 (2): Data-Model Comparison

Eds: Lohmann G, Newman L & Kiefer T

PAGES news, vol. 16(2), 1-40, 2008


This issue focuses on paleo-data and modeling comparison and highlights the importance of validating the results of individual reconstructions and simulations. A variety of comparison methods are showcased. Updates on PAGES' programmes and recent workshops are also included.
