Abstract

The Past Global Changes (PAGES) project was founded in 1991 with the mission to address past changes in the Earth System in a quantitative and process-oriented way in order to improve projections of future climate and environment, and inform strategies for sustainability. Toward this goal, PAGES has identified four sets of questions aimed at developing a better understanding of climate–environment sensitivity, regional variability, global system behavior and human interaction with climate and environment. These questions are addressed by scientific Working Groups that hold workshops and other activities, toward the production of syntheses and products. Furthermore, PAGES supports the international paleoscience community by fostering collaboration and communication, and ensuring access to and dissemination of results, data, and other relevant information.
