Details of the session
CL1.31: Climate response to orbital forcing
The pacing of the global climate system by orbital variations is clearly demonstrated in the timing of e.g. glacial-interglacial cycles. The mechanisms that translate this forcing into geoarchives and climate changes continue to be debated. We invite submissions that explore the climate system response to orbital forcing, and that test the stability of these relationships under different climate regimes or across evolving climate states (e.g. mid-Pleistocene transition, Pliocene-Pleistocene transition, Miocene vs Pliocene, and also older climate transitions). Submissions exploring proxy data and/or modeling work are welcomed, as this session aims to bring together proxy-based, theoretical and/or modeling studies focused on global and regional climate responses to astronomical forcing at different time scales in the Phanerozoic.
Convener: Christian Zeeden  
Co-Conveners: Joyce Bosmans, Anne-Christine Da Silva, Aisling Dolan, Stefanie Kaboth, Mingsong Li, Mathieu Martinez, Matthias Sinnesael, Nicolas Thibault
(1) How to submit your abstract

Each session shows the Abstract Submission link. Using this link you are asked to log in to the Copernicus Office Meeting Organizer with your Copernicus Office user ID. You may submit the text of your contribution as plain text, LaTeX, or MS Word content. An abstract processing charge (APC) of €40.00 gross will be levied.

Detailed information on how to submit an abstract can be found at

The deadline for the receipt of abstracts is 10 Jan 2018, 13:00 CET. If you would like to apply for a Roland Schlich travel support, please submit no later than 01 Dec 2017. Details can be found at

(2) Late abstracts 

Abstracts sent to the conveners after 10 Jan 2018 for submission on your behalf have the strict deadline of 18 January 2018, 13:00 CET. These late submissions require final approval by the programme committee and will be invoiced with €80 gross.

(3) First-author oral preference rule
Regarding the oral preference, you are allowed as the first author to submit either one regular abstract plus one abstract solicited by a convener, or two solicited abstracts. Each further abstract has to be submitted with a poster preference or submitted to PICO sessions. Since the system limits, oral-preference submissions to the one you will need to provide a transaction number (TAN) when submitting your additional solicited abstract. This TAN can be obtained from the convener of the respective session. If you submit to a session belonging to the EOS programme group, you are allowed as the first author to submit one more abstract with an oral preference (three in total).

(4) Abstract-presentation obligation
The submission of an abstract carries with it the obligation that it is actually presented at the meeting by the author or, at least, by one of the co-authors. If this is not possible, please withdraw your abstract at your earliest convenience. Without early withdrawal, abstracts not presented at the conference are identified as no-shows and their PDF file will be removed from the conference programme.
