European Palaeoclimate and Man (EPC)


This programme is based on a reconstruction of the development of European climate since the last glaciation and its interpretation in terms of natural and human influences. The research is multidisciplinary, involving several of the natural sciences, and also history and archaeology. Studies of the evolution of the climate system in the past are now recognised to be of fundamental importance in predicting even its short-term future, and in assessing its response to human activities, such as the generation of CO2 and other greenhouse gases.
