The SIPERG is involved in a variety of projects that generate data. Published data is freely available to researchers and members of the public and may be obtained using the links on this page. Please contact PI Wanamaker if you are interested in obtaining unpublished data from current or past projects.

Climate Change Info Links
(credit Dr. Erich C. Osterberg)
- IPCC Fifth Assessment Report (2014)
- Summary for Policy Makers: Bullet points for those looking for a quick understanding of where we stand
- Synthesis Report: good overall look at the changing climate and its impacts – more in depth than the SPM
- Working Group I: “The Physical Science Basis”: Detailed info on climate change data and models
- Working Group II: “Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability”: Detailed info on impacts of climate change
- Working Group III: “Mitigation of Climate Change”: Detailed look on what we can do about it
- Arctic Climate Impact Assessment
- RealClimate.org: “Climate from Climate Scientists.” And they really are. These articles are all by very well respected scientists in the field of climate and paleoclimate, and they have great discussions about the topics of the day
- US National Climate Change Impact Assessment Report: An interactive web page to Explore the National Climate Assessment and Development Advisory Committee’s 2014 report. Like the IPCC but just for the US.
- US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA): Provides good visuals and summaries of climate change and mitigation. Good introductory resource for students/li>
- Past Global Changes (PAGES): “PAGES (Past Global Changes) supports research aimed at understanding the Earth’s past environment in order to make predictions for the future. We encourage international and interdisciplinary collaborations and seek to promote the involvement of scientists from developing countries in the global paleo-community discourse.”
- Anually Resolved Archives of Marine Climate Change: The ARAMACC project is an EU-funded international collaboration whose scientific goal is to use the shells of very long-lived molluscs as a record of environmental change in the northeast Atlantic ocean over the past thousand years. The ARAMACC team is made up of scientists from Croatia, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal and the UK.
- Climate Science Initiative"The Climate Science Initiative (CSI) is established in response to urgent needs and opportunities for authoritative information certain to be forthcoming through almost every federal agency that supports research, state agencies, and the private sector in response to rapidly emerging public concern over global climate change and its regional implications. Because of its impact on every segment of society, and most directly the basic resources of soil and water and their role in food (and now fuel) production, climate change is a quintessential land-grant-university research issue."
