Dear colleagues

We would like to draw your attention to our *EGU session CL1.21: “On the
dynamics of Dansgaard-Oeschger events; perspectives from paleoclimate data
and modeling”* at the upcoming EGU (European Geosciences Union) conference
in Vienna 8-13 April 2018. The session will have two invited talks
given by *Claire
Waelbroeck and Marisa Montoya.*

The session description can be found below and also here:

We are looking forward to many exciting contributions.

Note that the submission deadline is 10 January 2018 and the application
deadline for travel support for EGU is 1 December 2017.

Kind regards, on behalf of
Henrik Sadatzki, Mari F. Jensen, Kerim Nisancioglu, Markus Jochum, Camille
Li, and Joel Pedro (conveners)

On the dynamics of Dansgaard-Oeschger events: perspectives from proxy data
and modeling

The millennial-scale variability associated with Dansgaard-Oeschger (D-O)
cycles during the last glacial is known to have affected the climate system
on a global scale. New high-resolution sediment and ice core proxy records
document in increasing detail local and global variability of ice sheets,
sea ice, as well as oceanic and atmospheric circulation during the D-O
cycles. In addition, insights into the dynamics of the coupled
ocean-cryosphere-atmosphere system during the millennial-scale climate
cycles are emerging from improved model simulations. Documenting the
precise timing and sequence of events in proxy records and capturing the
processes responsible for the global pattern of rapid climate changes,
which stretch from Greenland to Antarctica, remains a major challenge.
However, understanding the underlying dynamics will provide fundamental
information on the stability of the global climate system. In this
interdisciplinary session, we welcome proxy- and model-based research that
tests hypotheses on causes and processes behind the D-O events and helps
understanding past, present and future changes to the climate system. The
session is hosted by the ERC synergy project ice2ice.
