  Information - CL8 Climate and ocean dynamics from high-resolution marine archives (co-listed in OS)

Event Information
This session will address the reconstruction of past climate and ocean variability on interannual to centennial timescales from high-resolution marine archives such as corals, sclerosponges, clams, laminated sediments and deposits from high sedimentation sites.

Topics of interest include the seasonality and interannual to multidecadal climate modes of the coupled ocean-atmosphere system, variations of the monsoons, and changes in the ocean circulation and surface and deeper-ocean characteristics on interannual to centennial timescales during past periods with boundary conditions different from today.

Contributions are welcome on the application of established and new proxies and their statistical interpretation. Presentations on the combination of proxy-based reconstructions with state-of-the-art climate model simulations are encouraged, in order to provide a better process-orientated understanding of climate and ocean dynamics on these timescales.

Nerilie J. Abram (Cambridge, UK; Canberra, Australia) "Coral records of the changing seasonal characteristics of the Indian Ocean Dipole during the Holocene"

Lloyd D. Keigwin (Woods Hole, USA) "Ventilation of the deep western North Atlantic during recent millennia"
