EGU 2013 - CL 1.3 Polar Continental Margins and Fjords

Kelly Hogan
Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to advertise the session CL 1.3 Polar Continental
Margins and Fjords at EGU 2013 (Vienna, 8-12 April 2013). Interest in
this session is growing and last year we had a diverse series of talks
and posters, from the North Sea to the Wilkes Land margin, that
stimulated interesting discussions of polar margins and processes. We
look forward to welcoming you to another exciting session this year!

Students/young scientists can apply for financial support (and we
encourage you to do so), but note that the deadline for submitting an
abstract for this (30 November) is looming!  All the information on
Support options can be found here:

CL 1.3 Polar Continental Margins and Fjords - Glacial and Climatic
Evolution in the Cenozoic

Glaciated continental margins and fjords are natural archives of
glacial advance-retreat cycles that are often well-preserved as they
are below the wave base. These settings provide an excellent tool for
studying past and present ice-ocean-seafloor interactions via
high-resolution geophysical and geological datasets. Swath-bathymetry
and 3D seismic data reveal the glacier-influenced morphology and
sedimentary architecture of high-latitude margins and how they have
evolved through time, whilst short and long sediment cores
ground-truth these data and provide evidence of the changing influence
of ice and other environmental conditions (e.g. climate, tectonics,
sedimentary processes, oceanography), often at high temporal
resolution. We welcome abstracts from researchers working in both
southern and northern high-latitudes, from those working on
physical/sedimentary processes at a variety of scales, as well as more
methodological talks.

A full description of the session can be found at:

Deadline for Receipt of Abstracts: 9 January 2013
Deadline for Support: 30 Nov 2012
