The aim of the workshop is to study patterns in a large dataset of surface samples across the Arctic marine realm and link the diatom assemblages to modern observations of climate and environment. The outcome will lead to improved understanding of diatom ecology and their use as proxies in paleoceanography, and the development of transfer functions for quantitative reconstructions.

The workshop is open to all, but for practical reasons, participation is limited to a maximum of 25 participants. Financial support for attending the meeting is available thanks to funding from the PAGES Research Network, and the iClimate center of Aarhus University. It will be primarily allocated to early career researchers and/or researchers from low- and middle-income countries.

23-25 October 2024 

The workshop will start on Wednesday morning, so participants should count on arriving in Aarhus on Tuesday. On Friday, we will wrap up in the early afternoon, so people can travel home in the evening or on Saturday.
