shifting environmental baselines over decades to millennia and comparisons with the Antarctic

Please consider contributing to the optional Workshop theme by tying your presentation to changing environmental conditions in the Arctic. Also encouraged are documenting changes in and around Antarctica and comparing responses between the two polar regions.


There are no a priori formalized topics beyond the above theme. The program will be organized in sessions developed from the abstracts submitted for presentation as well as special sessions promoted by attendees.

Special Sessions?

The Workshop encourages attendees to propose special sessions and asks that they gather at least several collaborators and colleagues to join them. Please email us with your ideas.
