Climate of the Past, 2016

The 2013 PAGES 2k consortium reconstructions have shown clear regional expressions of temperature variability at the multi-decadal to century scale, whereas a long-term cooling trend prior to the 20th century was evident globally. These findings pointed to the necessity of understanding regional differences for a truly global view. This special issue intends to assemble papers proceeding from the coordinated efforts of the PAGES 2k Network to refine temperature reconstructions and create a history of regional precipitation changes.
