Overview

 

Organised by Dr Dan Lunt, Professor Harry Elderfield, Dr Gavin Foster, Professor Richard Pancost and Professor Maureen Raymo

A number of proxy methods are used to infer past atmospheric CO2 concentrations, such as fossilised leaves, paleo soils, and isotopes in ocean sediments. Each technique has its own strengths and weaknesses and methodological uncertainties. This meeting will aim to compare methods and their available records, leading to a deeper understanding of the processes which influence the proxies and the Cenozoic record of atmospheric CO2.
