Climate of the Past: An Interactive Open Access Journal of the European Geosciences Union
Climate of the Past (CP) is an international scientific journal dedicated to the publication and discussion of research articles, short communications and review papers on the climate history of the Earth. CP covers all temporal scales of climate change and variability, from geological time through to multidecadal studies of the last century. Studies focussing mainly on present and future climate are not within scope.
The main subject areas are:
- reconstructions of past climate based on instrumental and historical data as well as proxy data from marine and terrestrial (including ice) archives;
- development and validation of new proxies, improvements of the precision and accuracy of proxy data;
- theoretical and empirical studies of processes in and feedback mechanisms between all climate system components in relation to past climate change on all space and time scales;
- simulation of past climate and model-based interpretation of palaeo climate data for a better understanding of present and future climate variability and climate change.
