Geohydro 2011 session, Long continental and marine sedimentary sequences as Quaternary paleoclimatic records
Guillaume St-Onge (ISMER, UQAR) and I would like to attract your attention to a thematic session entitled: Long continental and marine sedimentary sequences as Quaternary paleoclimatic records (see below) during the upcoming Geohydro 2011 meeting (www.geoHydro2011.ca), a joint meeting of the Canadian Quaternary Association (CANQUA) and the Canadian Chapter of the International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH-CNC). The conference will take place in QuÃ©bec City from August 28th to 31st, 2011.
Conveners: Pierre Francus and Guillaume St-Onge
Long continental and marine sedimentary sequences are invaluable tools to reconstruct and understand the climate and ocean circulation variability during the Quaternary. In this session, we invite oral or poster presentations using long continental or marine sequences to investigate past ocean and climate/environmental variability during the Quaternary at any timescale and location. These records include, but are not limited to: ODP (Ocean Drilling Program), IODP (Integrated Ocean Drilling Program) or ICDP (International Continental scientific Drilling Program) records, long IMAGES (International Marine Past Global Change Study) calypso cores, jumbo piston cores, etc. Contributions on chronostratigraphic/dating strategies and on terrestrial/marine linkages are also encouraged.
Abstract deadline for both oral and poster presentations is January 12th, 2011
Happy Holidays and hope to see you at the conference!
Guillaume St-Onge (ISMER) and Pierre Francus (INRS-ETE)
