Data sets from the Palaeoclimatology Research Group at MPI-BGC Jena are now available in the Data Synthesis section.

The old PMIP logo gets a well deserved retirement and is replaced by a brand new PMIP 2 logo! If you don't think the new logo has a déjà-vu look, consider taking an evening off from your research and renting this movie about two guys chasing alien bugs (not in their GCM! :).
