The study of paleoclimatology is an activity that goes on all around the world, in large part because such a vast undertaking entails collecting scientific data from many different sites. As such, this site has a great deal to offer both scientists working in the field and the layperson who may be interested in learning more about the world of paleoclimatology. One area that may be of particular interest to scientists is the World Data Center for Paleoclimatology, which provides many types of climate proxy data gathered from thousands of locations around the world. The Paleo Perspectives area of the site is quite helpful, as it explains how this scientific area informs the general understanding of climate change and global warming. The Education & Outreach area of the site is, likewise, quite useful, as it contains a basic introduction to paleoclimatology and a climate timeline. The site is rounded out by a section that talks a bit about the goals of the group's work and various funding opportunities.
