Dear colleagues,

(apologies for cross-posting)
We are pleased to announce the Past atmospheric variability inferred from paleoclimate proxies session at the AGU Fall Meeting 2017 (New Orleans, 11-15 December 2017), convened by Erika K Wise (, Laia Comas Bru (laia.comasbru AT, Armand Hernández  (ahhernandez AT, and Valerie Trouet (trouet AT

Climate signals recorded in natural archives are controlled by a combination of local, regional and global climatic forcings. Disentangling these different controls is crucial to assess the ability of specific proxy data to capture the evolution of large-scale modes of climate variability. In addition, issues such as spatio-temporal discrepancies between paleoclimate proxies, and how their climatic interpretations can be reconciled, remain unclear. A multi-proxy approach and/or data-model comparison studies can elucidate the mechanisms controlling the proxy-based climate signals, allowing for a proper interpretation of how these proxies may reflect past climate and atmospheric changes.We welcome studies of past large-scale atmospheric and climate patterns during the last few millennia, over a range of timescales, captured by any climate proxy type (marine and/or terrestrial). We encourage contributions that integrate both climate modelling and field/proxy data as a way to foster model-data comparison.

Contributions should be submitted at the 2017 AGU website:

Deadline: All abstract submissions must be received by 2 August 2017.

We would be grateful if you could bring this notice to the attention of your colleagues.

We are looking forward to seeing you in New Orleans!

Best Regards,
Laia Comas Bru, Armand Hernández, Erika K Wise, and Valerie Trouet
