Dear Australasian Quaternary colleagues,
If you work on palaeoclimate archives or integrated palaeoclimate modelling in the Southern Hemisphere this session will be of interest. Please consider submitting an abstract to this for the XVIII INQUA Congress in Bern, 2011.
Abstracts are due 30th November.
Session # 2: Linking Southern Hemisphere multiproxy records and past circulation patterns: AUS-INTIMATE and wider Southern Connections
Session description: This session builds on the increasing availability of high quality multi-proxy records in the Southern Hemisphere covering the last glacial cycle to present. The aim is to illuminate the hemisphere-wide changes in ocean-atmospheric circulation, from the tropics to Antarctica. Australasian-INTIMATE is a formal project which has taken the approach of integrating these records into climate event stratigraphies for the marine and terrestrial realms of Australia and New Zealand. This project is now investigating how climate events are related to local, hemispheric and global scale drivers and the variation of important climate phenomenon such as ENSO, SAM, and IPO. We invite papers that explore the links (including teleconnections) between millennial scale multi-proxy records and palaeo-synoptic conditions from throughout the Southern Hemisphere over the last glacial cycle, with specific focus on the last 30Ka. We particularly encourage papers involving integration of palaeoclimate records with climate models.
