29 (1): 30 years of PAGES: Past - Present - Future

Eds: Fischer H, Fritz S, Evans MN & Eggleston S

Past Global Changes Magazine, vol. 29(1), 1-60, 2021


Number of pages: 60

This issue of Past Global Changes Magazine celebrates the 30th anniversary of the PAGES project. Since its formation in 1991, PAGES has been at the forefront of paleoscience research. Here we present both a retrospective look at the past 30 years, and also look to the future in the special section led by the PAGES Early-Career Network.
