APEX - Arctic Palaeoclimate and its Extremes is a network research programme aiming to understand Arctic climatic changes beyond instrumental records. Our particular emphasis is to focus on the magnitude/frequency of the climate variability and, in particular, the "extremes" versus the “normal” conditions of the climate system. It is an interdisciplinary programme that integrates marine and terrestrial science and utilizes modelling and field observations. APEX involves scientists from 15 European countries, Canada and USA and is one of the coordinating programmes for palaeoclimate research during the International Polar Year (IPY) 2007/2008.
