The main theme of the conference is the examination of high frequency climate changes reflected in the geological record, and the pacings of change and their geological consequences, during the Holocene (the past 11,700 years). The meeting will be divided into sessions on ocean change, sea-level variability, terrestrial change, ice core change, the modeling of any or all of these, and the interaction between climate and humans. Provisional keynote speakers include Graeme Barker, Ian Hall, Anthony Long, Rosalind Rickaby, Bo Vinther, and Heinz Wanner.
Conference paper and poster contributions are welcome. Abstracts should be 150 words, and must be submitted to Steve Whalley (steve.whalley [at] geolsoc.org.uk) no later than 12 October 2012.
