Tools and techniques for palaeoclimate reconstruction

There will be a special seminar on palaeoclimate reconstruction which should be of particular relevance for RG6 and RG7 members (but any other members of Bjerknes would also be welcome to attend). There will be two 25 minute talks from two excellent speakers (biographies below): Eric Grimm (University of Minnesota) - "The Neotoma Paleoecology Database: Community-led Cyberinfrastructure for Global Change Research” Steve Jackson (Director, South West Climate Science Center, Arizona) - "Do paleoclimate proxies measure paleoclimate?”
