Subject: Paleoclimatology Forum
Description:The purpose of the Paleoclimate list-server is to provide a forum for Internet discussions and announcements among Paleoclimatologists throughout the world. The list is primarily for use by paleoclimatic researchers and scientists. Of primary emphasis are periods of the recent past where data from the paleoclimatic record are of particular value to the modern climate community. Thus the time periods of primary emphasis are Quaternary, especially the Holocene, although discussions of earlier periods are not discouraged.
Appropriate subjects for discussion might include:
new proxy and historical data availability
national and international meetings and symposia
national and international programs and program news
new paleoclimate-related publications
announcements of paleoclimatology or related courses
paleoclimate research initiatives
controversial topics in paleoclimatology
recent reports on paleoclimate research
paleo in the news
