Event Dates

The 2nd International Conference on Processes and Palaeo-environmental Changes in the Arctic: From Past to Present’ (PalaeoArc) is being held at Earth Sciences Department of the University of Pisa, 25-29 May, 2020.

The PalaeoArc is a network research programme aiming to further understand past and present environmental changes and processes in the Arctic. It is the successor of the previous network programmes of PONAM (Polar North Atlantic Margins), QUEEN (Quaternary Environment of the Eurasian North), APEX (Arctic Palaeoclimate and its Extremes) and, most recently, PAST Gateways (Palaeo-Arctic Spatial and Temporal Gateways).

We welcome contributions on the overall theme of Arctic palaeo-environmental changes and modern processes and we invite contributions particularly on: Role and dynamics of polar ice sheets and ice caps; Role and dynamics of high latitude ocean and sea ice; Role and dynamics of terrestrial environment and landscape evolution; Climate response to, and interaction between, different parts of the Arctic System.

The conference will include oral and poster presentations over 2.5 days and a mid-conference field trip. Workshops for young researchers will be offered. The Program Committee will select the winner for the Best Student Poster award. To be eligible, the presenting author of the poster must be a full-time student.

The deadline for abstracts and registration is 2 March, 2020.
