CALL for the "Reconstructing the Terrestrial end-Cretaceous Paleoenvironments in Europe- Congress 2014"



Hi all,

Find below information on a multidiscipliary meeting about the Maastrichtian 
paleoenvironments and Cretaceous-Paleogene boundary.

"Reconstructing the Terrestrial end-Cretaceous Paleoenvironments in Europe" - 
September 16-20th, 2014.

http://www.icp.cat/tremp2014/


Aims and scope

This congress is a multidisciplinary meeting devoted to recent paleontological 
and geochronological advances, both in the marine and continental records, 
which allow envisaging the Maastrichtian and its boundaries under a global and 
integrated scope.

The organizers outlined various significant topics that hopefully will be of 
your interest.
- Geology and geochemistry of the paleoenvironmental changes.
- Biostratigraphy and geochronology. The Cretaceous-Paleogene boundary.
- Marine changes. Correlation with the terrestrial record.
- Successions and paleobiogeography of vertebrate and invertebrate faunas.
- Climatic and vegetation trends.

The Organizing Committee is planning a comprehensive congress with 
multidisciplinary scientific program including plenary conferences and 
communications. Participants will also have the opportunity to explore the 
geologic and paleontologic record of the Tremp basin by means of two fieldwork 
excursions.


Early bird registration before May 30th with reduced registration fees
