PALCOM International Focus Groups & Projects
During the 2019-2023 inter-congress period, PALCOM wishes to promote IFGs and projects which will (a) facilitate improved understanding of the climate system and the linkages across terrestrial, marine and glacial realms, (b) encourage large-scale syntheses of terrestrial data and the creation of palaeoclimate or palaeoenvironmental databases, and (c) foster improved links with the palaeoclimate modeling community.
IFGs are designed to address broad-scale questions and to provide an "umbrella" organization to facilitate communication between more focused projects. Individual projects should be linked to an IFG, except in the case of exploratory initiatives.
Informal queries about proposed IFGs and projects should be addressed, in the first instance by email, to the Commission President, Tom Johnson email@example.com.
