The design of this conference is to be a "multidisciplinary" conference with
the aim of promoting communication between paleoclimatologists,
paleooceanographers, and climate dynamicists on questions of climate change
processes at different latitudes and time scales. The main questions that the
conference will be designed to address are:
- What are the atmospheric, oceanic, and biogeochemical pathways that can
translate local changes into global ones?
- How do these processes explain synchronous, asynchronous, and rapid
- How are the modes of variability in the climate system (frequency and
intensity) and their teleconnections altered by changes in the mean climate
system conditions? What are the thresholds and nonlinearities that affect
For each topic, there will be oral presentations and posters on both
climate dynamics and paleoclimatology, as well as on oceanography, where
appropriate. We hope that this juxtaposition will help to generate scenarios
that can explain synchronous and asynchronous climate change at low and high
latitudes at short and long time scales. The general topics for the sessions
- Ocean Dynamics
- Mid-latitude circulation
- Tropical climate
- Monsoon dynamics
Proposed Schedule (tentative)
The conference will run for four days with a morning and afternoon session
each day. There will be morning and afternoon keynote presentations (30
minutes), each followed by 20-minute contributed talks with ample time for
discussion. Each day will conclude with poster sessions on the relevant themes.
