The workshop, held in November 2017 in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, highlighted current research on ice-sheet and sea-level reconstructions, addressed critical gaps in field observations, and assessed the current knowledge of causes, rates, and mechanisms related to sea-level and ice-sheet dynamics during past warm periods.

The new PALSEA leaders have proposed another phase of the working group, and a decision will be made at PAGES SSC Meeting in May.
