PaleoDynamics Presentations at the 2019 Fall AGU Meeting

December 05, 2019

The 2019 Fall AGU meeting is next week and there will be many presentations from our PaleoDynamics Group, affiliated colleagues, and collaborators.  Below is a chronological list of all our activities.

In addition to the individual presentations, Smerdon and Ed Cook will also be convening the Climate of the Common Era session with co-coveners Kevin Anchukaitis and Kim Cobb.  This will be the 10th anniversary of the session and also mark the last time that the current group of conveners will convene the session.  Several retrospective talks will kick off the session to commemorate its 10th anniversary: Anchukaitis et al., Otto-Bliesner et al., and Evans et al.  These will be part of the two oral session on Thursday, 12 December 2019, from 8-10 and 10:20-12:20 and the poster session will be from 13:40-18:00 on the same day.
