Dear colleagues,
 
As AGU marks its Centennial in 2019, we are chairing a session at AGU (San Francisco, 9-13 Dec 2019) and soliciting for presenters. The session entitled “PP009: Cyclostratigraphy and Astronomical Forcing of Past Climates” aims to highlight recent advances in cyclostratigraphy and astronomical forced climate change. We also encourage contributions to the various challenges in the paleoclimatology and cyclostratigraphy.
 
We warmly welcome you to present your work here at AGU. 
 
Please feel free to forward this advertisement to all potential colleagues. The abstracts deadline is Wednesday, 31 July at 23:59 EDT.
 
Thank you.
Sincerely,
 
Mingsong Li
on behalf of Chao Ma and Rocio P Caballero-Gill
 
 
Session Title: PP009. Cyclostratigraphy and Astronomical Forcing of Past Climates
 
Session Description: The astronomical theory of climate change, pioneered by Milankovitch, connects variations in Earth’s orbit to glacial-interglacial cycles. As we continue to develop high-resolution globally distributed records, questions emerge concerning the pacing of various features of the climate system. Studies of the astronomical theory have led to established tools such as cyclostratigraphy and astrochronology allowing high-resolution geological time scale and a better understanding of mechanisms for past climate change. Their integration with paleoceanography provides important constraints on Earth’s paleoclimate and carbon cycle dynamics under different boundary conditions. Comparing cyclostratigraphic data with astronomical models also provides valuable insight into the chaotic dynamical nature of the Solar System in the remote past. This session focuses on cyclostratigraphic techniques, bringing together proxy-based, theoretical and/or modeling studies about global and regional climate responses to astronomical forcing at different time scales in the geologic record.
