North Pacific Environment and Paleoclimate from the Late Pleistocene to Present

  • Submission closed.

About this Research Topic

The vast area of the North Pacific, spanning ~55˚ longitude, represents a challenge for documenting and understanding the geologic history of ocean, atmosphere, and terrestrial environmental change. Nevertheless, its importance for many issues, including our fundamental understanding of ocean and atmospheric circulation patterns and teleconnections with natural modes of climate variability through time, has led to a steady rise in the numbers of study sites and proxy types.

This Research Topic aims to assemble studies that bring multi-faceted paleo-environmental data and perspectives together from a variety of proxies and sites located within the North Pacific region. Papers are encouraged to explore spatial and temporal relationships among ocean, atmosphere, terrestrial, and human processes, particularly on multi-decadal, centennial, and millennial timescales. To provide a wide range of temporal perspectives to the discussion, records that extend as far back as the Late Pleistocene up to the Common Era are welcome.

By bringing together a wide range of proxies and timescales that examine the impacts of paleoclimate on ecosystems, water, carbon, and humans, and interactions between marine and terrestrial processes, this Research Topic will contribute to an improved understanding of the region’s significance at global, hemispheric, and regional scales.
