PP029:
Paleoceanography and Paleoclimate at the Western Arctic Margins: Pacific-Arctic and Land-Ocean Interactions and Sea-Ice Changes





Session ID#: 26143

Session Description:
One of the most striking expressions of climate change in the Arctic is the retreat of summer sea ice in the western Arctic Ocean, attributed largely to the impact of Pacific waters and atmospheric circulation in addition to greenhouse warming. The long-term history of this oceanic/atmospheric system and its interactions with Arctic sea-ice conditions can be addressed by tapping sedimentary records from continental margins and adjacent deep-sea areas of the Arctic Ocean north of the Bering Strait, as well as respective terrestrial paleoclimatic archives. We invite contributions exploring the history of Pacific-Arctic water inflow and atmospheric circulation and the linkages to changes in Arctic environments using marine, terrestrial, and ice-core proxy records. High-resolution studies addressing recent (Holocene) climatic variability on submillennial time scales are encouraged, as well as investigations of longer stratigraphic records providing insights into warm environments of the more distant past (Early Pleistocene to Pliocene).
