ready Paleoenvironmental Standard Terms Thesaurus

Abbreviation: PaST Thesaurus

General Information
The Paleoenvironmental Standard Terms (PaST) Thesaurus is a thesaurus of standard terms used for defining measured variables by the World Data Service for Paleoclimatology. These terms describe the quantity measured, the material on which it was measured, reported error, units, analytical or statistical methods, transformations made to raw data, reconstructed seasonality, data type, and data format. Standard terms organize heterogeneous paleoclimate datasets and improve the findability, interoperability, and reusability of data.

Awaiting DOI assignment.
