We welcome abstract submissions to the Cyclostratigraphy and Astronomical Forcing session at AGU Fall Meeting 2020 (Dec. 7-11, 2020, mostly virtual with a reduced registration fee).
Title: PP009 - Cyclostratigraphy and Astronomical Forcing of Past Climates
Section: Paleoceanography and Paleoclimatology
Submit Abstracts: https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm20/prelim.cgi/Session/102449
Deadline: Wednesday, 29 July at 23:59 EDT
The astronomical theory of climate change, 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 paleoceanographic and paleoclimatic research 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.
