Dear colleagues,

We encourage you to consider submitting an abstract in the session *T121.
Insights from Microfossils, Palynology, and Their Modern Analogs: From
Traditional to Emerging Techniques”. *This session will be focused on
traditional uses of microfossils, such as in biostratigraphy and
paleoenvironmental reconstructions, continue to be central to many research
applications. Oxygen and carbon isotopes of microfossils have become the
backbone of paleoceanography. In recent decades, novel geochemical uses of
microfossils have been increasingly utilized, such as boron isotopes and an
ever-increasing suite of trace elements. This session will highlight a
broad spectrum of traditional and innovative microfossil applications in
terrestrial and marine environments, including modern analogs.

*Scientific Categories:* Paleoclimatology/Paleoceanography, Geochemistry,
Paleontology, Biogeography/Biostratigraphy

The abstracts deadline is 14 August 2018 (11:59 p.m., Pacific Time). *The
deadline to apply for an international travel grant is 5 July 2018. GSA

"When two or more ways of doing things give different answers, you first
thought should be 'why?' not one's right; one's wrong. There are a variety
of possible 'whys' and some of them are most enlightening" L. Edwards, 1991
