Sea Ice in the Paleoclimate System: the Challenge of Reconstructing Sea Ice from Proxies

Eds: de Vernal A, Gersonde R, Goosse H, Seidenkrantz M-S & Wolff EW

Quaternary Science Reviews, vol. 79, 1-230, 2013

This special issue contains a set of papers addressing various sea ice proxies and their application to large scale sea ice reconstruction. It is a contribution by the PAGES Sea Ice Proxy (SIP) working group and is partly an outcome of a workshop held at GEOTOP in Montréal in March 2012.
