The idea behind the Past Earth Network (PEN) is that much can be learned about how our climate models will perform in a changed climate, by studying past climate. To make this happen, the network will improve communication between Palaeo-climate scientists and statisticians. The network will hold conference events and working group meetings to discuss four themes surrounding climate change modelling and statistical methods. These meetings will promote discourse between disciplines and direct research concerning climate palaeodata and models. To become a member of the network please visit this link.
