EGU session - Late Quaternary ice sheet history, sea level change and landscape evolution of NW Europe
Dear all, a reminder that we welcome submissions toour EGU session GM9.3/CL1.25 : Late Quaternary ice-sheet history, sea-level change and landscape evolution of northwest Europe. Abstract deadline 10th Jan.
Confirmed invited speakers: Dr Louise Callard (Durham University) and
Dr Henry Patton (The Arctic University of Norway)
The northwest European continental shelf and terrestrial margin have experienced vast changes in sea level and climate during the glacial-interglacial cycles of the late Quaternary, resulting in
a complex history of landscape evolution. The processes and spatial patterns of marine and terrestrial sedimentation have been dominated by the growth and decay of major ice sheets, as well as phases of fluvial development and evolution. Regional expressions
of global sea-level changes have been modified by the history of late Quaternary glacial-isostatic adjustment. This region encompasses a diverse and evolving range of landscapes including marine, subglacial, periglacial
and tundra to climatically warm terrestrial environments, reflecting the changing climate. We invite researchers to share new insights into relative sea-level change, ice sheet history and palaeo-geomorphological changes during the late Quaternary, in this
important region of transition between marine and terrestrial environments. We particularly welcome abstracts from ECRs.
