Dear fellow Paleoclimate scientists and Australasian INTIMATE members,
This email is to alert you that abstracts and registration are now being
accepted for the PAST CLIMATES meeting to be held in May 2009, Wellington,
For more information including abstract deadlines, meeting updates and
draft programme please go to
I hope to see you there.
On behalf of the organising committee
PAST CLIMATES meeting Overview
The meeting will outline the latest advances in understanding past
climates in New Zealand and Australia, the causes and effects of climate
change in the Southern Hemisphere and the relationships with global
National and international participants will discuss climate in
Australasia and the Southern Hemisphere during ice age and warm world
conditions, highlighting collaborative research on the INTegration of
Ice-core, MArine and TErrestrial records (INTIMATE) and past climate
modelling to provide a multidimensional understanding of climate change.
The first day of the meeting is the Past Climates Symposium, in which
leading Australasian and International researchers will explain how
Southern Hemisphere climate research has advanced understanding of
regional and global climate change. Closing the symposium will be the
Antarctic Research Centre's annual S.T. Lee Lecture in Antarctic Studies
which will cover environmental and scientific research in Antarctica.
Symposium presentations will be aimed at a non-specialist audience with an
interest in the science behind climate change and the relationships
between the Southern Hemisphere and the global climate system.
Days two and three of the meeting consist of more detailed
"workshop-style" presentations and discussions. Workshop participation is
invited from researchers in all areas of Quaternary climate change science
that focuses on reconstructing past changes as a means of informing our
predictions of future changes.
