  Information - SSP23 Interactions between high frequency climate changes and deltaic margin architecture (co-sponsored by IAS)

Event Information
Deltaic margin (from prodeltas down to deep-sea fans) display thick sedimentary sequences that provide an expanded record of climate and sea-level changes during the last glacial-interglacial cycles. In return, they offer to sedimentary geologists the opportunity to understand the factors that control sequence architecture under the combined influence of changes in sea-level, sediment fluxes and tectonism, for a period that is better known than older stratigraphic intervals.
The objective of this session is to bridge the gap between sedimentary geologists (mainly using high-resolution geophysics and core data), paleoclimatologists (working on multi-proxy core analysis), and modelers (developing stratigraphic models) to better understand the interactions between climate changes and margin architecture. We will focus on the high resolution record of rapid climate changes during the Quaternary, and their imprint on sedimentary architecture and seismic expression. We will also investigate the imprint of rapid events (Heinrich events, sapropel equivalents, D/O events) on the stratigraphic record.
