Project Climate of northern Poland during the last 1000 years: Constraining the future with the past (CLIMPOL) is supported by a grant from Switzerland through the Swiss Contribution to the enlarged European Union. CLIMPOL aims at a quantitative reconstruction of winter and summer temperature (variability, trends, amplitudes and extremes) in northern Poland during the last 1000 years. The main beneficiary is the University of Gdańsk. The Swiss partner in the project is the University of Bern and Oeschger Centre for Climate Change Research.
The objective of INTIMATE network is to reconstruct past abrupt and extreme climate changes over the period 60,000 to 8000 years ago, by facilitating INTegration of Ice-core, MArine, and TErrestrial palaeoclimate records and using the combined data in climate models to better understand the mechanisms and impact of change, thereby reducing the uncertainty of future prediction.
As an open network, INTIMATE brings together international palaeo-climate scientists from a wide range of disciplines, to focus on developing innovative past climate reconstruction tools and methods.
