Welcome to Presto

Presto is the Paleoclimate Reconstruction Storehouse. Here, you can visualize and learn about paleoclimate reconstructions from the LGM to present.

Paleoclimate reconstructions are fundamental to our understanding of past climate. They are calculated using paleoclimate archives—tree rings, ice cores, sediment cores, and more—and statistical methods. At Presto, you can browse a selection of published paleoclimate reconstructions, learn more about data analysis, conduct your own reconstructions, or learn more about this project.

To get started, click a topic on the banner above, or select a time period below to browse published reconstructions.
