The increasing accuracy of the time-scales used for the correlation of marine, lake and and terrestrial records together with the recovery of excellent climate records in the Northern and Southern Atlantic and the Mediterranean have provided new clues to understand the natural behaviour of Earth´s climate as well as the evolution of terrestrial and marine ecosystems. Deep sea sapropels in the Mediterranean as well as the astronomically-driven rhythmic sections along the Mediterranean marginal basins and the Atlantic have been crucial for the elaboration of the astronomical time scale and its calibration with radiometric time. In this meeting we are pleased to welcome all Scientists interested on the climatic, biologic and geologic history of the Atlantic and Mediterranean over the last 23 Myr.
