Apologies for cross-posting.
We would like to draw your attention to the session 11n ‘Development, improvements and limitations of organic (paleo)environmental proxies’ that we
will be organizing at the 2017 Goldschmidt conference in Paris (August 13-18). The key-note speaker of the session will be Prof. Dr. Jaap Sinninghe
Damsté (Royal NIOZ, The Netherlands).
Abstract submission is open until the 1st of April at https://goldschmidt.info/2017/abstracts.
Please feel free to circulate this announcement to any of your students, postdocs or colleagues who may be interested.
Looking forward to seeing you in Paris,
Vincent Grossi & Guillemette Ménot.
11n ‘Development, improvements and limitations of organic (paleo)environmental proxies’
Organic molecules produced by terrestrial plants, phytoplankton and prokaryotes are widely used as biomarkers to trace environmental and
climatological changes back in time. However, despite their large scale applications, questions remain on their biological production, diagenetic
behavior (from source to sink) and the significance of the signal recorded in sedimentary archives. This session will welcome presentations on various
aspects of the use of aquatic and terrestrial biomarker-based proxies and/or stable isotope composition as tools for environment/climate
reconstruction from modern to ancient sedimentary settings. We especially encourage contributions on recent analytical developments,
laboratory-controlled studies of biological precursors, potential and limitations of novel molecular environmental indicators, improvement of
calibrations and multi-proxy comparisons.
