Description
Dataof QUEEN in PANGAEA comprise results from analysis of marine sediments, ice cores, profiles through periglacial deposits and lacustrine sediments as well as modelled and reconstruced environmental data. more

Under the umbrella of the ESF, the programme QUEEN (Quaternary Environment of the Eurasian North) aims to combine information obtained by Russian and Western projects to provide a common picture of present and past environmental changes across the whole Arctic. Regions of particular importance for understanding the Arctic's role in global climate change are the Eurasian shelves and the land masses south of these, including Siberian permafrost. The ice sheets in these regions are key elements in paleoclimatic models and play a vital role in the reconstruction of a continuos paleoenvironmental record. Special effort is devoted to the correlation of records from different sources across the Arctic.
