Test WG summary module QUIGS

Summary

By integrating paleoclimatic records from marine, ice and continental archives together with climate model simulations, the PAGES-PMIP QUIGS Working Group aims at improving (1) reconstructions of climate and environmental changes occurring during the Interglacials of the Quaternary and (2) our understanding of the involved processes and feedbacks.

Goals

- Document and synthesize paleoclimatic data on the temporal and spatial patterns of climate responses during warm extremes and glacial terminations.
- Examine similarities and differences between interglacials of the "100kyr-World" vs interglacials of the "41kyr-World".
- Provide a framework and recommendations for climate model exercises investigating the governing processes and feedbacks.
- Assess the relevance of Quaternary Interglacials to understanding future climate change.
