The hyperthermals that pepper geological records are typically studied in isolation yet they share many similar features that have obvious resonance with our warm future. In this meeting we aim to bring together specialists in various fields to find common ground and thereby improve our understanding of these enigmatic events and, as a result, better understand how the Earth System works when it experiences extreme and rapid warmth.
