Dear List members,

AGU Fall Meeting 2012: "Insights to the Modern and Palaeo Carbon Cycle: Isotopic and Biomarker Perspectives” (session B035)

We invite you to submit abstracts to the above session, run in conjunction with the "Development of Isotopic Proxies for Palaeoenvironmental Interpretation: A Carbon Perspective" (DIPPI-C) working group, at this years AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco (3rd - 7th December). Associated with the DIPPI-C working group and this AGU session is a special theme in the AGU and Geochemical Society Journal Geochemistry, Geophysics, Geosystems (G-Cubed) which is currently open for manuscript submission for research related to this session (i.e. C cycle processes at a range of spatial and temporal scales using organic and inorganic carbon geochemistry)[for more info - http://www.agu.org/journals/gc/theme.shtml?collectionCode=CARBON1&journalCode=GC].

Session conveners:

Chris Brodie (The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong SAR)
Phil Meyers (The University of Michigan, USA)
James Casford (Durham University, UK)
Jesper Olsen (Aarhus University, Denmark)

Session description:

Understanding the carbon (C) cycle is central to constraining environmental processes from biological productivity through to palaeoenvironmental interpretation. Quantifying these processes at different spatial and temporal scales requires an integrative inter-disciplinary approach incorporating both organic and inorganic C. This session aims to bring together researchers that use bulk and compound specific ä13C, Ä14C and biomarker distributions in marine and terrestrial, modern and palaeo environments. We encourage contributions investigating biological productivity; short- and long-term C fluxes; diagenesis, preservation and soil processes; C cycling in modern and palaeo-environments; and method development.

Invited presenters:

Prof. Peter Swart (The Univeristy of Miami, USA)

Prof. Katherine Freeman (Pennsylvania State University, USA)

[More presenters to be announced shortly]

Abstract submission can be done via http://agu-fm12.abstractcentral.com/ [Deadline is 8th August 2012, 23:59 ET]

Student Travel Grant Applications: https://www.agu.org/education/grants/travel.shtml [Deadline is 15th August 2012, 23:59ET]

All the best,
