Organizers of the international conference entitled "Palaeo-Arctic Spatial and Temporal (PAST) Gateways" announce registration and call for abstracts. The conference will convene 13-17 May 2013 in St.Petersburg, Russia.

PAST Gateways is a network research program endorsed by the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC). The scientific goal of PAST Gateways is to understand arctic environmental change during the period preceding instrumental records and across decadal to millennial timescales. The focus of the six-year program is on the nature and significance of spatial and temporal arctic gateways, with an emphasis on the transitions between major Late Cenozoic climate events and recent Holocene fluctuations. There are three major themes to the program:

  1. Growth and decay of arctic ice sheets;
  2. Arctic sea-ice and ocean changes, and
  3. Non-glaciated arctic environments.

Abstract deadline: Friday, 15 March 2013.

Registration deadline: Friday, 15 March 2013.
