UIS Commission on Karst Hydrogeology and Speleogenesis

The 21st International Radiocarbon Conference is co‐organized by the French Radiocarbon community and UNESCO. It will be hosted at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, France, from 9 to 13 July 2012. If you have any results related to past continental reconstructions and radiocarbon then you are encouraged to submit an abstract to the session number 11.

Session 11:
This session addresses multiple issues related to time series for continental palaeoclimatic records and palaeohydrological responses. It focuses on precisely dated continental records that shed light on climatic variability on all continents and its impact on hydrology and vegetation changes. Palaeoclimatic reconstructions from continental carbonates (speleothems, travertine, gastropods, ostracods, soils carbonates, calcified roots, etc.), from continental and coastal organic matter (peat, sediment, soil, vegetation, etc.) are welcome. Besides climatic reconstruction, processes involving carbon isotopes (12C, 13C, 14C) and bio indicators (pollen, diatoms, sponge spicules, phytolits, etc.) in above organic archives are welcome.
