Protocol papers

Throughout the life time of INTIMATE, a main activity has been to develop and publish an event stratigraphy based on the Greenland ice core records and protocols for robust correlation of climate records.

The protocol papers, sorted according to publication time with the newest first, are listed here:

INTIMATE special issues

Results with contributions from INTIMATE activities have over the years been published as stand-alone papers in numerous journals as well as in concentrated collections of papers forming three special issues in Quaternary Science Reviews. A fourth special issue is planned for publication late in the INTIMATE COST funding period.
