|Convener: W.Z. Hoek | Co-Conveners: Achim Brauer , Anders Svensson , Ana Moreno , Didier Roche , Irka Hajdas , Paul Valdes , Sune O. Rasmussen , Danni Pearce , Brice Rea|
For this session we would like to invite contributions that are in line with the objectives of INTIMATE in order to better understand the timing, mechanisms and impact of climate change over the period from 60,000 to 8000 years ago.
We especially welcome contributions closely linked to the current working groups in INTIMATE:
1) Dating and Chronological Modeling: developing and improving dating methods over the last 60,000 years and bringing scientists together to develop a coherent dating framework in which records can be compared at unprecedented detail.
2) Quantification of Past Climate Change: comprise and quantify information of past climate from e.g. ice cores, tree rings, corals, stalagmites, and marine and lake sediments in order to draw a detailed picture of the highly variable climate evolution in the North Atlantic region.
3) Modelling Mechanisms of Past Change: optimize methodologies to evaluate model simulations and make data-model comparisons by using combined ice core, terrestrial, and marine data sets.
4) Climate Impacts: quantify the magnitudes and rates of population, species, and ecosystem responses in space and through time in order to gain insights into the impacts of past climatic changes on animal and human populations and the ecosystems of which they are part.
This session is a contribution to the INTIMATE COST action ES0907 http://cost-es0907.geoenvi.org/
