The USSP Consortium and the Darwin Center for Biogeology announce the 3rd Urbino Summer School in Paleoclimatology, an advanced course in paleoclimatology co-sponsored by the Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Research (IMAU) and the Netherlands Research School of Sedimentary Geology
The course will be focused on major climate changes during the Cenozoic Era. Experts will give lectures in the areas of stratigraphy, (bio)geochemistry, models and integration of results. This will be achieved by interactive discussions of case-studies (e.g. Early Paleogene hyperthermal events and the Eocene-Oligocene transition) in classes and practicals, providing the participants advanced knowledge on various types of paleobiological and geochemical proxy data and their use in paleoclimate reconstructions and modelling.
Title: "Dynamics and Evolution of Cenozoic Climate"
Location: Urbino, Italy
Dates: July 19-August 2, 2006
