Information - SSP18 Paleo-environmental indicators in carbonate systems (co-sponsored by IAS)
Recent research has highlighted the important role that environmental changes play over biotic assemblages and facies dynamics in carbonate systems. Major controls include changes in climate, atmospheric CO2 levels, ocean circulation and seafloor spreading rates, which have influenced temperature and seawater chemistry, weathering rates, carbonate saturation state and nutrient availability, and thereby have determined boundary conditions for the biota that form carbonate platforms. We seek contributions that provide new insights into how sedimentological, geochemical, diagenetic and paleocological approaches can be used as indicators for environmental controls in carbonate systems.
