After the successful Miocene meeting held in Stockholm (Sweden) in June 2019, Utrecht University is pleased to host the second edition, MioMEET2023 (Miocene Climate Dynamics), in the Netherlands.   

General information

The aim of this meeting is to bring together data and modelling communities of researchers who study the Miocene (23-5 Ma) climate dynamics to address key questions on mechanisms, processes and feedback operating in the climate system during this time interval.   

We have identified 5 themes (modelling efforts, climate, ocean, biosphere and cryosphere). Each theme will be introduced by a keynote speaker followed by a few (invited) talks. Most presentations will be given as a poster to facilitate interaction among participants and make the meeting more dynamic. There will be ample time for break-out and discussion sessions.   
The meeting will start on Monday June 5th (after lunch) and last until Wednesday June 7th, 2023 (late afternoon).  On Thursday, June 8th 2023, the PAGES PlioMioVar group organises the MioOcean Temperature Synthesis workshop.   


Both meetings will be held at Landgoed Zonheuvel Hotel and Conference Centre, Amersfoortseweg 98, 3941 EP Doorn, near Utrecht, website in Dutch: We have chosen a slightly remote location near Utrecht to have all the participants spend the entire time of the meeting(s) at the location.
