Dear Colleagues:

It is our pleasure to invite you to participate at the special session PP06 on: " Late Mesozoic-Early Cenozoic Biostratigraphy and Paleoclimates”,at the AGU Meeting of the Americas,which will be held in the Cancun Convention Center, Mexico, from 14-17 May 2013.

The Meeting of the Americas is sponsored by AGU and the Mexican and Latinamerican geosciences societies.
Meeting Information:

We hope to see you in Cancun.

Session description:
Late Mesozoic - Early Cenozoic was characterized by global climatic changes with the OAEs, Paleogene hyperthermals, PETM, Late Oligocene Warming Event (LOWE) and the Oi-glaciation events. Obtaining high resolution records and explaining the causes and mechanisms of this variability remain a challenge. Current hypotheses suggest that ocean circulation, global heat transport, continental temperatures, latitudinal temperature gradients, eustatic sea levels changes and astronomical forcing played an important role. We welcome studies that combine micropaleontology, biostratigraphy, geochemistry, isotopes, sedimentology, and chronostratigraphy, to address the climatic variability of this interesting period.
