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 run for about four hours each day, from 14:00-18:15 CET, with a combination of live talks and discussions and potentially pre-recorded content relevant to the daily themes.
