You are cordially invited to help launch the new Paleoclimate
list-server, which is designed to provide a forum for Internet
discussions and announcements among Paleoclimatologists throughout the
world. The list is primarily for use by paleoclimatic researchers and
scientists.  Of primary emphasis are periods of the recent past where
data from the paleoclimatic record are of particular value to the modern

climate community.  Thus the time periods of primary emphasis are
Quaternary, especially the Holocene, although discussions of earlier
periods are not discouraged.

Appropriate subjects for discussion might include:
--> new proxy and historical data availability
--> national and international meetings and symposia
--> national and international programs and program news
--> funding opportunities
--> employment opportunities
--> new paleoclimate-related publications
--> announcements of paleoclimatology or related courses
--> paleoclimate research initiatives
--> controversial topics in paleoclimatology
--> recent reports on paleoclimate research
--> paleo in the news

At this time, this is an unmoderated list and is also available as a
weekly digest (see below.)  However, only subscribers may post messages
to the list.  We encourage vigorous discussions and controversial topics

as well as respectful  "netiquette".

To Subscribe to the Paleoclimate-List, please send an e-mail message to
listproc at, with the following message (only!) in the
body of the text:

            subscribe paleoclimate-list <your-full-name>

 Subscribe paleoclimate-list Albert Einstein

We also offer a weekly digest version which you can sign up for
immediately by sending listproc at the following

subscribe paleoclimate-list <your-full-name>
 set paleoclimate-list mail digest

Once you subscribe a more detailed message will be sent to you
explaining in more detail the digest options, how to unsub, etc.

If you have any questions, check out Web site at:

We’re really excited about the potential for this list and welcome your
participation and ideas on how to "cross-pollinate" between the many
disciplines and backgrounds in the paleo world.

Sincerely yours,
