PAGES

The PAGES (Past Global Changes) project is an international effort to coordinate and promote past global change research. The primary objective is to improve our understanding of past changes in the Earth system in order to improve projections of future climate and environment, and inform strategies for sustainability.

PAGES supports research which aims to understand the Earth’s past environment in order to obtain better predictions of future climate and environment, and inform strategies for sustainability. We encourage international and interdisciplinary collaborations and seek to promote the involvement of scientists from developing countries in the global paleo-community discourse.

PAGES’ scope of interest includes the physical climate system, biogeochemical cycles, ecosystem processes, biodiversity, and human dimensions, on different time scales – from the Pliocene to the recent past. PAGES’ science structure addresses the key components of the Earth system through the themes climate, environment, and humans. PAGES’ vision is implemented primarily through community-devised working groups. Over 5,500 scientists from more than 125 countries currently subscribe to PAGES. PAGES is funded by the US and Swiss National Science Foundations and NOAA, is a core project of Future Earth, and a scientific partner of WCRP.
