Conference Cancelled 6/10/2011
Deciphering Paleoclimatic Signals from
Truro, Nova Scotia
Joggins Cliffs Outcrop
There is now an increased awareness of the potential of continental stratigraphic archives (fluvial, lacustrine, eolian, glacial, paleosol, etc.) for providing highly resolved records of environmental change over geological timescales. This meeting aims to bring together researchers from the various cognate disciplines to review the state of the art, consider the potential for future advances and discuss potential applications of this area of research to resource exploration. We anticipate that papers presented at the meeting will form the basis for an SEPM Special Publication.
The conference will combine oral and poster presentation sessions with field excursions to facilitate discusssion on a wide range of topics. The meeting's field trips with focus on the Carboniferous Maritime Basin and Mesozoic Fundy Basin in mainland Nova Scotia, where there are spectacular exposures of successions germane to the conference theme. These include the World Heritage listed Joggins Cliffs. Truro is centrally located ot the outcrops of interest and is within 60 minutes drive from Halifax International Airport.
