The Palaeoclimate 2ka Research Group became the Eastern European regional coordinator of the SISAL initiative

The 2ka Palaeoclimate Research Group became the Eastern European regional coordinator of the SISAL initiative. SISAL (Speleothem Isotopes Synthesis & Analysis) is a PAGES working group aims to bring together speleothem scientists, speleothem-process modelers, statisticians and climate modelers to develop a global synthesis of speleothem isotopes that can be used both to explore past climate changes and in model evaluation.

The map illustrates a state of the art overview of locations of investigated speleothems, that were used for palaeoclimate studies (red closed circles); the white closed circles indicate the speleothems, whose datasets are available on the NOAA palaeoclimatology database – these are only 19% of the speleothems pictures here (Feb. 2014). The two pie charts illustrate the spatial and temporal distribution of the speleothems. (Bottom pie chart) 55 % of the speleothems grew within the Holocene and 45% are Pleistocene, distributed over two million years; however, most of them grew between MIS 7 and MIS 2. (Top pie chart) 39% of the speleothems grew in Europe; 17% in Asia; 13% in North America; 12% in Oceania; 6% in the Middle East; 5% in South America and 3% Middle America and Africa, respectively (figure adopted and modified from Deininger, 2013).
