The third ACME workshop will be taking place at INQUA23 in Rome, Italy.
Date: 12 July
Title: Best practices and data quality challenges for coastal marine proxies in the Arctic ACME Steering Committee
Convenors: Maija Heikkilä, Ecosystems and Environment Research Programme, University of Helsinki, Finland, firstname.lastname@example.org, Anna Pieńkowski, Institute of Geology, Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznan, Poland, email@example.com, Sofia Ribeiro, Department of Glaciology and Climate, Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland, Copenhagen, firstname.lastname@example.org, Kaarina Weckström, Ecosystems and Environment Research Programme, University of Helsinki, Finland, email@example.com
The main goal of this workshop is to disseminate and discuss the relevant results and deliverables from ACME WG Phase I, to gather feedback and to plan future steps with the wider community. In addition, we wish to facilitate knowledge transfer and collaborations between proxy specialists and end users as well as between various research groups.
We will address representatives from PAGES ACME, MARDI, C-SIDE WGs, INQUA CMP and PALCOMM, The Climate and Cryosphere (CliC) Core Project, small and large research networks conducting research on Arctic marine sediments or applying Arctic paleoceanographic data (such as climate modellers and modern oceanographers/ecologists).
Discussion points include the state-of-the-art proxy use, relevance of harmonization of research processes and metadata documentation, critical methodological points and data quality challenges, important aspects of big (and small) data interpretation and application. We discuss these within a framework of proxies commonly used for temperature, sea ice, primary production, and meltwater runoff reconstructions in Arctic marine, coastal and fjord environments over the Quaternary.
