International Geoscience Programme Project 591 - Closing Meeting
'The Early to Middle Palaeozoic Revolution'
- The International Subcommission on Cambrian Stratigraphy (ISCS)
- The International Subcommission on Ordovician Stratigraphy (ISOS)
- The International Subcommission on Silurian Stratigraphy (ISSS)
- The International Subcommission on Devonian Stratigraphy (ISDS)
- IGCPs 596 and 653
"A combined data-model approach to understand the early to middle Palaeozoic revolution"
This multidisciplinary meeting aims at bringing together specialists from the data-community, including but not exclusively:
- physical stratigraphy,
- geochronology and
with specialists from the numerical modelling community
who focus on, e.g.: climate
or sedimentological modelling
. Using data-model comparison methods
, we aspire to obtain a better understanding of the complex processes that shaped the Earth
during the IGCP591 'time window'
, and, by extension, the whole Palaeozoic
As such, we will construct a synthesis of the advances made during the whole IGCP591
programme and associated projects, and help set the agenda for continued community-driven initiatives
for the future.
Given that deep-time data-model comparison requires a profound understanding of the stratigraphy, this will be a joint meeting with the Cambrian, Ordovician, Silurian and Devonian commissions on stratigraphy.
Break-out sessions for each of the sub-commissions' specific research and business will be organized as part of the meeting.
The ISDS session will be co-sponsored by our friends of IGCP 596.
