About 35 experts from 10 countries took part in the workshop. In general, palaeoclimatologists were asked to identify and discuss the data corresponding to the three topics as defined by the programme committee:A 1) Abrupt Climate Changes 2) Initiation of Glaciation 3) Glaciated polar regions and their impact on global climate Climate modellers were asked to give their views as to how these specific problems could be modelled, what use could be made of the available palaeoclimatic data and which complementary data are needed for modelling. This volume contains the outcome of the workshop i.e. a report and the summaries of the presentations in the form of proceedings. In the investigation on the relationships between modelling and data interpretation, it was found that there are two main ways in which general circulation models can be applied to palaeoclimatic research: global reconstructions of the atmospheric circulation for specific times of the past, and sensitivity studies of the impact on the model stimulations of the prescribed variations of the particular external factors.
