PAGES-relevant session

The following session is convened under the theme "Southern Ocean - Past Global Linkages".

Conveners: Xavier Crosta (France), Luke Skinner (UK), Rahul Mohan (India)

The main objective of this symposium is to bring together experts from a range of disciplines (biology, earth sciences, chemistry, ocean processes) to better identify past oceanic bipolar teleconnections in relation to global LSOC dynamics over the Plio-Pleistocene and provide constraints on its future evolution in response to anthropogenic warming. Non-exhaustively, topics may cover the following aspects: past changes in the SO upwelling and latitudinal mean position of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current; the dynamic controls of circum-Antarctic deep ocean ventilation/overturning circulation during the past few million years; implications for the marine biogeochemical cycles of carbon and nutrients.
