EGU session CL1.21: “On the dynamics of Dansgaard-Oeschger events; perspectives from paleoclimate data and modeling
We would like to draw your attention to our EGU session CL1.21: “On the dynamics of Dansgaard-Oeschger events; perspectives from paleoclimate data and modeling” at the upcoming EGU (European Geosciences Union) conference in Vienna 8-13 April 2018. The session will have two invited talks given by Claire Waelbroeck and Marisa Montoya.
We are looking forward to many exciting contributions.
Note that the submission deadline is 10 January 2018 and the application deadline for travel support for EGU is 1 December 2017.
Kind regards, on behalf of Henrik Sadatzki, Mari F. Jensen, Kerim Nisancioglu, Markus Jochum, Camille Li, and Joel Pedro (conveners)
CL1.21 On the dynamics of Dansgaard-Oeschger events: perspectives from proxy data and modeling
The millennial-scale variability associated with Dansgaard-Oeschger (D-O) cycles during the last glacial is known to have affected the climate system on a global scale. New high-resolution sediment and ice core proxy records document in increasing detail local and global variability of ice sheets, sea ice, as well as oceanic and atmospheric circulation during the D-O cycles. In addition, insights into the dynamics of the coupled ocean-cryosphere-atmosphere system during the millennial-scale climate cycles are emerging from improved model simulations. Documenting the precise timing and sequence of events in proxy records and capturing the processes responsible for the global pattern of rapid climate changes, which stretch from Greenland to Antarctica, remains a major challenge. However, understanding the underlying dynamics will provide fundamental information on the stability of the global climate system. In this interdisciplinary session, we welcome proxy- and model-based research that tests hypotheses on causes and processes behind the D-O events and helps understanding past, present and future changes to the climate system. The session is hosted by the ERC synergy project ice2ice.
