22-25 October, 2017


This session presents recent developments in methodology and applications for the analysis of cyclostratigraphy with the twin goals of improving high-resolution geochronology and understanding paleoclimate change.


Cyclostratigraphy aims to investigate astronomical cycles (the Earth’s orbital eccentricity, obliquity, and precession) preserved in sedimentary rocks that were influenced by climate- driven deposition affected by insolation. Cyclostratigraphy has wide applications including high-resolution geochronology, paleoclimatology, paleoceanography and astronomy. In order to improve communications among practitioners of cyclostratigraphy, this session seeks to promote recent and ongoing developments in cyclostratigraphy.
