Earth’s geologic past entrains a vast, variable, and highly informative climatic archive. Incidentally, it is also often elusive to ascertain. Whereas models and climatic proxies can both be used to inform our geologic past, each comes with its own challenges: Models rely on imperfect physics and underlying assumptions, whereas proxies are sparsely situated and often uncertain. In recent years, ‘paleo data assimilation’ has arisen as a means of leveraging and combining these two archives. In this talk, I discuss the ‘paleoDA’ method including new approaches, advances, and future challenges (or, pitfalls), illustrated through recent and ongoing climate reconstruction efforts that span three million years ago up to the recent Holocene.
