XVIII INQUA Congress session

INQUA 2011 – Deadline for abstract submission (posters only): 10 May 2011

The XVIII INQUA Congress will be held 20-27 July 2011 in Bern, Switzerland. The organizing committee recently re-opened the abtract submission for POSTERS and we would like to encourage Quaternary and Paleoclimate scientists to consider submitting an abstract before 10 May 2011 in the following session:

Session # 16 on “Late Quaternary paleoclimate and paleoenvironmental change from high-latitude Southern Hemisphere regions, including Antarctica”

Session description:
We invite a broad range of oral and poster contributions related to the reconstruction of Late Quaternary changes in climate and environment based on the analysis of lake, marine and ice core archives from the high latitude regions of the Southern Hemisphere, including Antarctica. We particularly encourage papers that focus on high resolution paleoclimate records covering the last deglaciation, as well as more recent time windows (e.g., LIA, MCA). Contributions based on a wide variety of sedimentological, geochemical and biological proxies, and papers focusing on the application of new analytical techniques, novel proxies and dating methods for studying and linking lake, marine and ice core records in the Southern Hemisphere high latitudes and Antarctica are especially welcome, as are contributions that deal with Late Quaternary natural and anthropogenic environmental changes.

More than 30 abstracts (12 talks and 19 posters) were already accepted. For further details see http://www.inqua2011.ch/?a=programme&subnavi=abstractlist&sessionid=16
