Coral reefs are valuable recorders of past sea level, climatic and environmental changes and are sensitive to subtle ecological changes affecting their environment.

Modern coral reefs provide integrated sequential records of sea-level along with quantitative palaeoclimatic and palaeoceanographic data within the geochemistry of sediments and skeletons of reef-builders. We invite submissions that: 1) showcase the use of modern reef studies to inform our understanding of Quaternary climate; 2) document new case studies of climate effects preserved in reef carbonates; and 3) introduce new techniques for investigating the effects of climate change on reefs.

The contributions related to reef records of sea-level change will be integrated in a subsession in honor of John Chappell and entitled « Reefs and sea-level change, a Tribute to John Chappell ».


The abstract submission is now open and closes on 17 February 2012.

The full list of IGC 2012 Themes and Symposia are now available on the 34th IGC 2012 conference website (http://www.34igc.org).
