The development of modern databases of dinocyst assemblages after standardization of laboratory procedures and taxonomy permitted application of transfer functions sensu lato for the reconstruction of sea-surface conditions. Among the main approaches, the modern analogue technique (MAT), which is based on similarity instead of calibration, appears to be more appropriate than others although the artificial neural network (ANN) can also provide very good results. As presented at the workshop, a brief description of the MAT and ANN techniques as applied to dinocyst data is given and the advantages and disadvantages of the techniques and their limits of application are summarized.
