REMINDER: Invitation to session on Ice cores and Climate - XXV IUGG Melbourne 28th June 2011 (IACS Symposium C-02) [Sec=Unclassified]
Apologies for cross-posting
Abstract submission now extended to Feb 1. It would be great to see you in Melbourne.
We have confirmed Dr Xiao Cunde from as an invited speaker.
Please circulate to others that you think may be interested.
This is an invitation for abstracts for the International Association of Cryospheric Sciences (IACS) Symposium C02 "Ice cores and Climate" at the XXV International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) General Assembly -- Earth on the Edge: Science for a Sustainable Planet
When: 28 June - 7 July 2011
Where: Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre; Melbourne, Australia
Co-Convenors: Kumiko Goto-Azuma (Japan), Tas van Ommen (Australia)
Scope: Ice cores from mountain glaciers and polar ice sheets provide detailed and wide-ranging information about past climate and environmental conditions on timescales from decades to hundreds of millennia. They also provide one of the few sources of data, from air bubbles trapped in the ice, of the composition of past atmospheres. They are hence key tools for global change research. For example, ice cores demonstrate the close connection between climate and greenhouse gas (GHG) concentrations and provide an estimate of the sensitivity of climate to GHGs. They also indicate that abrupt climate transitions have occurred in the past. Contributions to this session are invited on recent ice core climate records from all regions of Earth and at all time scales. Records showing the links between Southern Hemisphere and Northern Hemisphere climate changes are particularly welcome. Contributions providing calibration of ice core records, and new forms of proxy record are also solicited.
