Paleoenvironmental science provides important context for assessing ongoing and projected changes in Earth's climate and has informed research on central issues such as greenhouse gas variability, abrupt climate change, and ice sheet dynamics. Studies of the past have provided insight into natural climate variability at interannual to glacial/interglacial timescales and have fostered appreciation for a systems approach to global environmental change.
As a contribution to the future of paleoscience, the Past Global Changes (PAGES) project, an international effort sponsored by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the Swiss and U.S. National Science Foundations to coordinate and promote past global climate change research, convened its 1st Young Scientists Meeting (YSM) in July 2009, as an adjunct to the subsequent 3rd Open Science Meeting. Early career researchers were given the opportunity to broaden their knowledge base, build international and cross-disciplinary networks, tackle emerging issues of concern to the paleoscience community, and learn about international science infrastructures.
