This 2nd International PASADO Workshop is based on the research initiative “Potrok Aike Lake Sediment Archive Drilling Project” (PASADO) within the framework of the “International Continental Scientific Drilling Programme” (ICDP). PASADO addresses several challenging issues of geoscientific and socioeconomic relevance related to Earth history and climate like qualitative and quantitative climatic and environmental reconstruction as well as reconstruction of the palaeosecular variation of the Earth's magnetic field and natural hazards like fire history, frequency of volcanic activity including tephra fallout or dust deposition. The history of volcanic activities for the last ca. 50,000 years is another interesting topic. Moreover, dust and tephra records will provide means to link this unique southern hemispheric terrestrial record to marine sediment archives and to ice cores from Antarctica. Finally, obtained reconstructions of climate variability will be compared statistically with the output of Global Circulation Model (GCM) simulations to improve our understanding of forcing mechanisms of the global climate.
