We are inviting abstract submissions for a session during the upcoming AGU Fall Meeting on "Late Quaternary Records of Rapid Climate Change in The Tropical Pacific" (Session PP17).
Rapid climate fluctuations characterized the last glacial and deglaciation, while global warming may force similarly rapid changes in the modern era. These fluctuations impacted global climate and ocean systems. Evidence suggests the tropical Pacific exhibited a complex response, but this is very poorly characterized due to a lack of high-resolution proxy records from the Pacific. This session aims to present new research expanding our understanding of how the Pacific region responded to climate changes during the late Quaternary. We welcome presentations on all aspects of paleoclimate and paleoceanography in the tropical Pacific, especially studies of rapid variations during the last glacial, deglaciation and Holocene.
The AGU Fall Meeting is the largest annual scientific conference in the world (regularly drawing over 15,000 delegates) and the premier meeting for geochemistry and geophysics. The conference is held in San Francisco on 5-9 December. Abstract submission is open now (http://agu-fm11.abstractcentral.com/) and closes on August 4th at 23:59 EDT. Full details of the meeting can be found here: http://sites.agu.org/fallmeeting/
We look forward to receiving your submission.
