CELL 50k Calibrating Enviroenmental leads and Lags over the last 50 ky

12.11 - 15.11.2012
Budapest, Hungary

JOINT MEETINGCELL-50K (Calibrating Environmental Leads and Lags over the last 50 kyr) – an IFG as part of the INTIMATE group.

This is a 4 day meeting aimed at formally starting the CELL-50k. CELL-50k is an INQUA IFG that will co-ordinate efforts to provide a strong chronological framework for the investigation of how climate forcing is translated into regional climate events and the degree to which different regions show lagged responses to the initial forcing. We will do this by developing robust chronostratigraphic frameworks for testing the scale of leads and lags in response to climate forcing between and within different regions.

Within the North Atlantic realm the INTIMATE group has worked for a number of years to formally integrate Ice core, marine and terrestrial recordsThe meeting will consist of short presentations, posters and discussion sessions. The key aim of the meeting is to discuss key problems for correlation environmental signals in different parts of the globe and to set up new approaches to regional and inter-regional correlation of climate records. A key feature of the INTIMATE groups in the North Atlantic and Australasian realms has been to establish key event-stratigraphic frameworks for each region.

This meeting aims to start this process for other regions and to develop new ideas for comparison of these event stratigraphies between regions. A major goal is to find people willing to establish new regional INTIMATE groups in new regions to work with the existing INTIMATE network.
