EUCOP 2018 session “Past environments in permafrost regions”

Marc Oliva
Dear colleagues,
We would like to draw your attention to the session “Past environments in permafrost regions” at the upcoming 5th European Conference on Permafrost 2018, at Chamonix-Mont Blanc (France), 22rd June – 1st July 2018.
 
The deadline for abstract submission is approaching fast: 15th November 2017
 
Chairs: Marc Oliva (University of Barcelona), Michael Fritz (Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research), Stefanie Cable (University of Copenhagen)
 
Key-note speaker: Mikhail Kanevski (University of Alaska Fairbanks)
 
 
Past climate and environmental records can provide analogues to recent and future perturbations in permafrost environments to identify ice/land/ocean/atmosphere feedbacks influencing regional and global climate conditions.
 
Permafrost environments host a wide range of terrestrial and aquatic records, providing data on past environmental and climatic changes of short (seasonal) to very long (geological) time scales. The study of palaoenvironmental archives may provide insights on the linkages and responses of terrestrial ecosystems to climate variability. Additionally, understanding the history of a permafrost region can provide valuable information on permafrost properties, such as the spatial distribution of ground ice and carbon, e.g. needed for permafrost modelling. We welcome abstracts from terrestrial environmental archives, such as lake sediments, periglacial deposits, tree rings, ground ice, fluvial/alluvial and coastal deposits.
 
The main purpose of this session is to report on the state of the art and on the latest developments on understanding past environments in permafrost regions, as well as to identify gaps and areas for future research.
 
 
Do not leave it for the very end!
 
Marc Oliva
