  Information - SSP6 Phanerozoic climate: forcing factors and feedbacks between biosphere and geosphere (co-listed in BG & CL)

Event Information
The aim of this session is to bring together paleontologists, sedimentologists, stratigraphers, (bio-) geochemists, paleoceanographers, and modelers to better understand the evolution and linkages of the geosphere and biosphere systems, in particular to model major shifts and perturbations in the marine and terrestrial records of the Earth System, including oceanic anoxic events, extinction events, and climate change of Cenozoic and Mesozoic times.
We encourage contributions from an array of subdisciplines that aim to better understand how opening and closing of oceanic gateways affect climate, how orogenesis, erosional history and climate are linked, and how changes in oceanography (temperature, salinity and productivity) and ocean chemistry affect biological evolution. We welcome micro- and macropaleontological studies, reconstructions of climate - tectonics linkages, elevation and erosion records in evolving orogenic systems, and investigations of changing ocean chemistry. Moreover, contributions on the geological consequences of biological evolution, and feedbacks of biomineralization and productivity in biogeochemical cycles are solicited.
We are looking forward to welcome your contributions to this session, and hope to see a large participation! Moreover, we especially encourage students and young scientists, who will as far as possible have the occasion to present new results orally.
