This open session invites contributions in the field of ocean and land climates, which do not fit into the specialized sessions. It will welcome presentations of modelling studies as well as (paleo)-observations.
Here, papers will be collected from those sessions, which attracted a too small amount of contributions and did not fit into other specialized sessions both on climatology and paleoclimatology. However this is a session by itself and you must feel free to submit directly your paper to the Open session. This guarantees all authors an appropriate representation.
Opportunities of publishing your contribution is proposed in the on-line and open access EGU journal "Climate of the Past" www.climate-of-the-past.net
CL0 part 3 starts (13:30-13:45) with the 2010 Climate Division Oeschger Medal presentation to Dr. Françoise Gasse and her medal lecture (45') following.
