GSA Annual Meeting: October 27-30, 2013

The Geologic Society of America 125th Annual Meeting will be held in Denver, CO, October 27-30, 2013. There are a number of sessions hosted by the Limnogeology Section focusing on lacustrine sediments which may be of interest to Novus participants.

Abstracts are currently being accepted and can be submitted here until August 6, 2013.
Numerous travel grants are also available, see details here.

T31. Recent Advances in Understanding Great Basin Paleoclimate
This session encourages presentation of new observations and geochronology leading toward new interpretations of Pleistocene and Holocene lake level changes and other climate-related effects in the western U.S. Great Basin.
T64. Lacustrine Basin Analysis and Petroleum Systems: Ancient Case Studies, Modern Analogs, New Frontiers
This session will encompass the evolution of our understanding of lacustrine geology, including research on the geology, geochemistry, and geophysics of lake basins (modern and ancient), with special relevance to petroleum systems development.
T66. New or Improved Proxy Methodology for Enhanced Resolution and Accuracy of Climatic and Paleoenvironmental Interpretations in Sedimentary Records
This session will serve as an examination of advances in climatic and environmental proxies to enhance our understanding and the accuracy of interpretations.
T67. West of the Plains, North to Alaska: The Role of Montane Lake, Bog, Fen, and Soil Records in Unraveling Climate Change in Western North America
One of the major challenges to understanding the impact of climate change in mountainous regions is identifying the impact of local factors on climate history. This session seeks biotic and abiotic records of these changes.
T68. World of Lakes
Lacustrine records continually provide new insights into terrestrial paleoconditions. Limnogeology and paleolimnology have taken tremendous strides in the past 50 years. This session invites all contributions related to lake research.
T193. Continental Carbonates
Continental carbonates contribute paleoenvironmental information for reconstructions of paleoclimate as well as landscape drainage patterns. Research on lacustrine and palustrine limestones, microbialites and spring deposits, and evaporites will be highlighted.
