16 (1): Paleoceanography

Eds: Kienast M, Lynch-Stieglitz J, Newman L & Kiefer T

PAGES news, vol. 16(1), 1-44, 2008


This issue highlights recent advances in paleoceanography. Many of these studies were presented in one form or another at the 9th International Conference on Paleoceanography (ICP9), which took place in September 2007 in Shanghai, China.
