When citing data from Paleoclim.org, please cite both the PaleoClim manuscript and the original manuscript(s) that generated to each climatology (see ‘original data citation’ in the download table). This supports the continued generation of these derivative works, the primary research of the groups generating them, and promotes collaboration among PaleoClim and other researchers.
For example, if you used the mPWP, M2, and LGM data sets.
You would cite:
the three original papers that generated each climatology
-Dolan, A. M. et al. Modelling the enigmatic Late Pliocene Glacial Event—Marine Isotope Stage M2. Global and Planetary Change 128, 47-60 (2015). -Hill, D. J. The non-analogue nature of Pliocene temperature gradients. Earth and Planetary Science Letters 425, 232-241 (2015). -Karger, D. N. et al.
