EP022:
Land-Ocean-Atmosphere Dynamics in the Development of the Asian Monsoon

Submit an Abstract to this Session



Session ID#: 23103

Session Description:
In the last five years the Integrated Ocean Discovery Program has conducted six expeditions to study the evolution of the Asian Monsoon, as well as its impact on environmental conditions and erosion onshore. Building up a robust data set of how these processes change is critical to improving our understanding of how natural systems and phenomena operate and change, in particular the question of how the solid Earth may have affected the monsoon and what feedbacks exist, We welcome contributions using different proxies for studying monsoon history as recorded in sedimentary archives on and offshore, covering the entire Asian monsoon. New advances promoted by innovative methodology will be considered for this session, with attention to technologies that enable coupling of bulk and single grain analyses with an actualistic approach based on a variety of time-scales. We hope to promote discussion concerning monsoon reconstructions, global climate and tectonics over the Cenozoic.
