INQUA Paleoclimate Commission

PALCOM seeks to develop international collaborations in various aspects of Quaternary palaeoclimate research.

Mission statement

The remit of the INQUA Palaeoclimate Commission (PALCOM) is to optimise the use of palaeo-data for detailed climatic reconstructions. The overall objective is to enhance understanding of Quaternary climatic perturbations, transitions and abrupt events. To this end, PALCOM encourages interactive projects with the other INQUA Commissions to comprehend the links between climatic changes and environmental and human responses. The commission is also attempting to foster strategic links with the international climate modelling community, to assist the process of palaeo-data/model comparisons.
