Michele Rebesco

Dear Colleague,

We would like to highlight that the European Geosciences Union 2019 will be held in Vienna 7-12 April 2019 and that the deadline for Abstract submission is January 10, 2019.

Further information: http://www.egu2019.eu/


We kindly invite you to submit an abstract to the session:

CL1.25 Polar continental margins and fjords – climate, oceanography, tectonics and geohazards 

Convener: Michele Rebesco  
Co-conveners: Matthias Forwick , H. Christian Hass , Berit Oline Hjelstuen , Jan Sverre Laberg

During the last decade significant advances in our understanding of the development of Cenozoic polar continental margins have been made. These include more detailed reconstructions of the climatic, oceanographic, and tectonic evolution of high northern and southern latitudes over various time scales, as well as reconstructions of past ice-sheet dynamics and studies of marine geohazards. Results have been obtained from conventional and high-resolution 2D and 3D seismic surveying, as well as from short sediment cores and longer drill cores (e.g. IODP, MeBo).
Fjords are regarded as “small oceans” that incise high latitude coastlines and link continental margins with the interiors of landmasses. Fjord settings allow us to study a variety of geological processes similar to those that have occurred on glaciated continental margins, but typically at smaller scales. The contribution of several sediment sources (e.g. glacial, fluvioglacial, fluvial, biological) to fjord basins along with relatively high sedimentation rates also provides the potential for high-resolution palaeoclimatic and palaeooceanographic records on decadal to centennial timescales.
The aim of this multi-disciplinary session is to follow on from the success of previous years by bringing together researchers working on northern and southern high-latitude continental margins and fjords, investigating the dynamics of past ice sheets, climate, tectonics, sedimentary processes, physical oceanography, and palaeo-biology/ecology.


Two Keynote Speakers have been invited:

- Julia (University of Houston) Preliminary results from IODP Expedition 379 (Amundsen Sea West Antarctic Ice Sheet History)

- Patrick Lajeunesse (Université Laval) Late-Wisconsinan paleoglaciology of the Western Gulf of St. Lawrence and adjoining areas

 


Please feel free to forward this invitation to any people you think may be interested.


Kind regards,

Michele Rebesco, Matthias Forwick , H. Christian Hass , Berit Oline Hjelstuen , Jan Sverre Laberg
