High-resolution Holocene climate records are invaluable for assessing how Earth is likely to respond to projected temperature and related environmental changes during the next few centuries to millennia. Despite differences in temporal and spatial resolution, ice, terrestrial and marine archives of past change are invaluable for depicting such changes. Well-preserved, continuous, high-resolution records are vital for such studies but rare. Marginal basins such as Mediterranean, Black Sea, Baltic, Cariaco trench, E/S China Sea provide precious archives not only containing well-preserved sediment proxies but also including a range of different environmental and climatic conditions. In this session we address natural climate change ranging from large temporal variability to high-frequency solar-cycles dominated variability in such marginal basins while comparing to other, terrestrial, marine, and ice-core records.
We particularly encourage contributions that use multiple proxy, high-resolution approaches highlighting origin, processes, and mechanisms for climate variability and the reflection thereof in the sedimentary archives.
