The primary goals of this workshop were to:

- Identify the main sources of uncertainty in the different types of proxy data

- Make recommendations for how to better represent proxy error to non-specialists

- Develop strategies for reducing uncertainties associated with each proxy type

- Develop internationally coordinated strategy for re-sampling existing key proxy sites and sampling key new sites for each climate proxy

This workshop was co-sponsored by EPRI, ICTP, U.S. NSF, NOAA, CLIVAR and PAGES.
