UTokyo AORI international workshop :

Recent Advances in Paleoclimate Studies

24-25 June 2016
Atmosphere and Ocean Research Institute, University of Tokyo

Conveners: Yusuke Yokoyama (UTokyo), Chuan-Chou Shen(NTU), Ryu Uemura(Univ Ryukyus), Tsuyoshi Watanabe (Hokkaido U), Yosuke Miyairi (UTokyo), Masako Yamane (UTokyo), and Yuji Sano (UTokyo)


Reconstruction of paleoenvironment using geological and biological archives provides important information for understanding the climate system. Advances in geochemical techniques including dating and proxy development over the past few decades have allowed these archives to be used to even more effectively. This workshop welcomes contributions on land and ocean records from low to high latitudes, with common or new, multi-proxy approaches. We particularly welcome field observations, lab simulations and technique development that address proxy interpretation, and we also encourage proxy-model syntheses that provide insights on physical mechanisms of climate systems. Presentations of technical advances are also greatly encouraged.
