PALSEA2 is the second phase of work to reduce the uncertainty around past ice-sheet and sea-level variability that began with the PALSEA (PALeo constraints on SEA level rise) working group co-sponsored by PAGES and INQUA. The second meeting of PALSEA2 took place against the backdrop of northwestern Scotland's postglacial landscape. Twenty-nine people from seven countries attended to explore, discuss, and debate the methods by which large databases of past sea level and ice-sheet extent can be

Delegates presented on the production and analysis of composite datasets, and enjoyed extensive field discussions at sites that had contributed to present day knowledge of the British and Irish ice sheets at the Last Glacial Maximum.
