This working group was created by merging four PMIP3 WG:


The purpose of the PMIP-DATA working group is to facilitate, support and coordinate model evaluation and benchmarking using palaeoenvironmental observations. The working group will promote:

  • data synthesis in both the terrestrial and marine realms

  • the development of tools and new approaches for data analysis and data-model comparison

  • the role of data assimilation in improving our understanding of past climate

  • the exploration of new uses palaeoenvironmental data to address global change issues

The working group will also be responsible for coordinating model evaluation and benchmarking exercises within CMIP6/PMIP4.
