Co-editors-in-chief: Laurie Menviel, Denis-Didier Rousseau, Marit-Solveig Seidenkrantz & Eric Wolff
Climate of the Past (CP) is a not-for-profit international scientific journal dedicated to the publication and discussion of research articles, short communications, and review papers on the climate history of the Earth. CP covers all temporal scales of climate change and variability, from geological time through to multidecadal studies of the last century. Studies focusing mainly on present and future climate are not within scope.
