Endorsed and affiliated groups


PAGES endorses and affiliates externally managed groups and organizations whose aims directly correlate with our science agenda.

Endorsed groups

Endorsement by PAGES recognizes our common goals and often entails collaboration in research efforts, sharing of resources, joint publications and/or combined workshops and meetings. PAGES does not take a managing role in the decision making process of the endorsed programs, but is kept informed of key outcomes and decisions, primarily via a short annual update to the PAGES SSC.

Our currently endorsed groups are:

> Arctic Holocene Transitions

> ICYS (Ice Core Young Scientists)

> IPICS (International Partnerships in Ice Core Sciences)

> PMIP (Paleoclimate Modelling Intercomparison Project)

> Varves Working Group


If your group would like to request PAGES endorsement please read the
PAGES guidelines and application form and send the completed form to the Executive Director.


Affiliated groups

Affiliation denotes a less formal connection where both the affiliated group and PAGES recognize they have an affinity on some goals or activities. From time to time, PAGES may promote some of the affiliated group’s relevant activities but is unlikely to give input on the affiliated group’s science or strategy or collaborate closely as we may in the case of endorsed groups. Affiliated groups are not required to provide an annual update to the PAGES SSC.

Our currently affiliated groups are:

> Climate History Network

> Glacial Ocean Atlas (Glacial deep ocean circulation)

> HistoricalClimatology.com

> IHOPE (Integrated History and Future of the People on Earth)

> IODP (Integrated Ocean Drilling Program)


To apply to become an affiliated PAGES group, send an email to the Executive Director or Science Officer outlining your project. PAGES may also identify and invite certain groups to become affiliated from time to time.
