Paleofire: data-model comparisons for the past millenium

27 September – 2 October 2015, Harvard Forest USA  A final synthesis workshop of the GPWG was held at Harvard Forest in Petersham, Massachusetts. The workshop aim was to bring researchers with paleodata expertise together with global fire modelers in order

Paleofire data synthesis using R

2-6 October 2013, Frasne, France The GPWG workshop held in Frasne, in the Franche-Comte region, was sponsored by the University of Franche-Comte and PAGES. Participants from seven countries presented recent fire history investigations, developed new project ideas for future global

New tool development for paleofire data synthesis

1-6 May 2013, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA The GPWG workshop held in Utah was a gathering of the coordination team to identify and develop new tools for use bye the paleofire community. The meeting was structured around developing R

Dartington III workshop

1-5 October 2012, Dartington, UK The focus of the fourth GPWG (the third to be held at Dartington Hall) was on fire feedbacks. The ten participants represented diverse areas of research: from analysis of modern fire records, through fire modeling,

Records of biomass burning from sediments and ice cores

19-24 June 2012, Venice, Italy The Venice Paleofire Workshop focused on identifying research synergies among biomass burning records from ice cores and sedimentary records. Participants presented recent fire history research and discussed the pros and cons of a range of
