Dear Colleagues,

at the next European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly in 
Vienna (13 - 18 April 2008) we are convening the session:

"Climate and ocean dynamics from high-resolution marine archives" 

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 

Our session is CL8. Information on abstract submission can be found 

General information on the EGU General Assembly 2008 can be found 

Note that the deadline for the receipt of abstracts is 14 January 2008!

Note that the deadline for the receipt of abstracts with support 
applications is 7 December 2007!

We look forward to seeing you in Vienna.
