Session serves up smorgasbord of paleoclimatic research



At the Western Pacific Geophysics Meeting held in July 1996 in Brisbane, Australia, a session titled “Glacial/Interglacial Records of the PEP Transects” brought together scientists interested in applying their range of expertise to interdisciplinary endeavors. For example, where else could one learn of progress in quantifying paleo-precipitation by using magnetic climofunctions, or how to obtain paleo-temperature from racemization measurements on ancient emu eggshells, or how to determine changes in the volume of the oceans from U-series ages on fossil reefs?
