  Information - US4 Toward a model/data synergy for understanding large changes in Earth Climate History: From the First Glaciation of the Earth to the Quaternary (abstract submission by invitation only) (co-listed in CL)

Event Information
The changes in climate that occurred during Earth history have produced large environmental changes and had an extraordinary impact on life evolution.

This session will be devoted to presenting new insights from modeling and data in assessing the rapid climate shifts that produced large impacts on environment and life evolution from deep time to the time of human evolution. During the last few years many pluri-disciplinary programs have been developed to investigate key issues concerning large changes in climate and environment of the Earth. These extend from the Paleoproterozoic glaciations, and even a possible mid-Archean glaciation before that, to abrupt climate shift during Quaternary.

These issues will be explored using many different constraints from a large spectrum of data, allowing us to build scenarios that may be tested by appropriate models.

The scope of this session will therefore be to put forward episodes of Earth climate history where the association of new constraints from data and modeling approach allow us to test causal relationship to explain and better quantify the impact of these climate shifts.
