The Pliocene epoch (5.33-2.59 Myrs) was the last sustained interval when global climate was significantly warmer than today. As such it is considered a good potential analogue for the conditions predicted for the end of this century due to anthropogenic climate change. However, the precise dynamics of the climate system as well as the causes of the termination of the Pliocene warmth and the onset of Quaternary climate are still poorly understood.
Following the successful first workshop on Pliocene climate in Bordeaux in 2009, the second workshop on Pliocene climate was held in Bristol (UK) on Monday 9 - Tuesday 10 September 2013 (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/cabot/events...). Organized by the University of Bristol and the Cabot Institute, the workshop brought together 80 international scientists from the proxy data and modelling communities to identify the most pressing research questions for the international Pliocene community and to identify gaps in our current understanding of this crucial interval.
