Initiatives


PAGES' science structure is implemented through the following initiatives:

Working Groups

Temporary groups that bring paleoscientists/scientists together from around the globe to target specific aspects of PAGES' science.

 

Integrative activities       

Cross-topical research areas with the potential to provide transformative advances in approaches to paleoscience and actionable results relevant to broader impacts.

 

Collaborations

Activities in which PAGES collaborates with other organizations and contributes a paleo-perspective.

 

Endorsed and affiliated groups  

Externally managed groups whose aims directly correlate with our scientific agenda.
