The CPCC have a regular seminar series, usually on Wednesday lunchtimes fortnightly. For details of past and future seminars see the seminars page.
CPCC Training Workshop: Pollen source area theory, modelling pollen-vegetation relationships, and dealing with reconstruction uncertainty, 7-12th September 2015.
The CPCC are delighted to host a training workshop on behalf of the Past Global Changes (PAGES) LandCover6k project. The workshop will focus on the reconstruction of land cover and land use from pollen using the landscape reconstruction algorithm modelling approach (a specifically the REVEALS and LOVE models) developed by Shinya Sugita. However, there will also be discussions on the theorectical basis of this approach through pollen source theory and alternative techniques (biomisation, modern analogue techniques). We are delighted to be able to welcome Shinya Sugita, Marie-Jose Gaillard, Colin Prentice and Simon Brewer to Reading to present this course.

NERC Short Training Course: Introduction to Palaeoclimate Modelling
The CPCC will be hosting the week-long NERC Training Course "An introduction to palaeoclimate modelling for palaeodata specialists" from 15-19th February 2016. This course, which is open to postgraduate students and postdoctoral researchers working with palaeoenvironmental, palaeoecological, palaeo-oceanographic, or archaeological data, will provide an introduction to state-of-the-art modeling of palaeoclimate and an opportunity to work with palaeoclimate simulations from the Palaeoclimate Modelling Intercomparison Project.
