Conference Objective

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:

Conference Overview

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 will be:

  1. Ocean Dynamics
  2. Mid-latitude circulation
  3. Tropical climate
  4. 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.
