CfP: Climate Variability and Human Impacts in Central and Eastern Europe during the Last Two Millennia

 The 1st Workshop of the PAGES Varves Working Group in Tallin (2009) significantly boosted existing paleo research and inspired a number of new activities related to varved lake sediments in Poland and the Baltic States (climate and environmental change, chronology etc.).  Following the success of this workshop, the Varves Working Group, along with PAGES’ the Euro-Med2k and LandCover6k groups will host a conference addressing climate variability and human impacts in central Europe during the last two millennia.

The specific goals of the proposed conference are to collate well dated, very high resolution data sets from different archives, which can contribute to the Euro-Med2k synthesis (and broader 2k Network synthesis) in 2016/2017. Furthermore, this meeting will explore questions about early human impacts and, in particular the question of how human impacts can be quantitatively separated from impacts of climate variability.

Abstracts for oral and poster presentations are invited for the following sessions:
1. Historical  climatology & documentary data
2. Climate reconstructions from natural archives
3. Past climate modeling, data-model comparisons
4. Proxy calibration
5. Past human impacts on the environment

Abstracts due: 31 Janaury 2015
