The Past to Future working group provides a focus for scientists interested in using paleoclimate information to improve predictions of climate change. The group website (https://wiki.lsce.ipsl.fr/pmip3/doku.php/pmip3:wg:p2f:index) contains information for those interested in learning about this area of research, with an outline of common methodologies, suggested targets for research, information on how to find model output and paleoclimate observations, and summaries of relevant papers over recent years. There is also a subgroup focussed on the Last Glacial Maximum which aims to keep track of model experiments which segregate the different forcings for that climate interval, with the aim of diagnosing the effect of the different feedbacks. As well as overviewing these activities, we will show some highlights of recent research in the P2F area.
