[M-IS34] Paleoclimatology and paleoceanography

Thu. May 28, 2015 4:15 PM - 6:00 PM 301A (3F)

We discuss past environmental changes and events at multi-decadal to tectonic timescale toward an understanding of Earth climate system by an integration of terrestrial and marine proxy studies and numerical modeling. We welcome a variety of paleo-environmental studies from a wide range of background. This session includes a special series of presentations on robust correlation. A large number of palaeoclimatic proxy curves are being generated every day. However, many/most of those curves are not robustly placed in the correlation matrix. Robust correlation based on independent criteria such as precisely determined absolute ages and/or key layers is a prerequisite for assessment of relative timings and discussion of mechanisms. The frontier researches for robust and independent correlation will be presented and discussed. We hope that this session will provide an opportunity to promote communication between participants from multidisciplinary field.
