Annually resolved archives of marine climate change (co-organized)
Convener: Stella Alexandroff  | Co-Conveners: Paul Butler , David Reynolds , Stefania Milano , Sarah Holmes , Fabian Bonitz , Amy Featherstone , Ariadna Albet Purroy 
 / Fri, 28 Apr, 13:30–17:00
 / Attendance Fri, 28 Apr, 17:30–19:00

We are inviting oral and poster presentations that focus on annually resolved archives of marine climate change, such as archives from bivalve molluscs, corals, coralline algae, sclerosponges, fish otoliths, and others. Such high-resolution proxy archives have the potential to make important contributions to our understanding of the regional and near-term impacts of climate change. This session will highlight advances and ongoing research in all the disciplines associated with these archives, including
(i) the biological and environmental drivers of growth increment formation;
(ii) the use of growth rates as well as structural and geochemical data as proxies of past marine environments and marine climate, and
(iii) the use of these archives in proxy-model comparisons.

The session is organized by the ARAMACC network, a Marie Curie Initial Training Network funded by the European Commission, and partners.
