A core pool of researchers conducting the Quaternary palaeoclimate studies of the Indian sub-continent are looking into the last two thousand years. The theme I2KQAT shall bring forth researchers who are primarily focused on these last two thousand year as to get evidences of the more recent changes during the Quaternary. These evidences range from palaeo-proxy records from both terrestrial and oceanic realms, proxy based climate reconstructions and modelled palaeo-climate records to future climate models based on palaeo records within this time frame. This working group shall encompass these researchers and create a data base for all these evidences in the Indian sub-continent. These records shall help create past climate models and predict future climate scenario based on proxy data and recent climate records. The primary vision of this group will be to provide policy makers conclusive evidences for future climate scenario and help them define definitive policies for the sustainable development and societal benefit based on them.
