The workshop "Continental Drilling for Paleoclimate Records" held at the GeoForschungsZentrum, Potsdam, Germany, June 30-July 2, 1995, was sponsored by PAGES and by the GeoForschungsZentrum, Potsdam, Germany, in conjunction with the International Continental Drilling Programme (ICDP). The impetus for the meeting was the need for long continental paleoclimate records that will fill gaps left by the marine and ice-core records and provide information on time and spatial scales that are relevant to human activities. Further impetus came from a perceived need to balance the forecasts and reconstructions of climate models with information on actual behavior of the climate system on the continents.
