Dear micropaleontologist,

If you are planning to attend the GSA 130th annual meeting in  Indianapolis,
Indiana, USA (4-7 November 2018), I would like to invite you to consider
submitting an abstract in the session *T121. Insights from Microfossils,
Palynology, and Their Modern Analogs: From Traditional to Emerging

*Full Session Rationale:*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.

In process of selection.

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

Mimi Katz & Peter McLaughlin will chair the poster session. Caitlin
Keating-Binoti, Ingrid Romero, and David Watkins will chair the oral

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
