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

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 laminated sediments and deposits from high accumulation sites, corals, sclerosponges, and clams.

Topics of interest include the natural range of seasonality and interannual to multidecadal climate variability of the coupled ocean-atmosphere system, expressed in a variety of climate modes such as ENSO, NAO/AO, AMO, SAM and the monsoonal systems, during past periods including those with boundary conditions different from today. Furthermore, short-term changes in the ocean circulation and surface and deeper-ocean characteristics will be addressed.

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.
