Notice of meeting.


The USGS-CCSP Committee for Synthesis and Assessment Product 1.2: Past Climate Variability and Change in the Arctic and at High Latitudes will meet in the Hampton Inn in Lakewood, Colorado on July 12-13, 2007.

Agenda: The goal of the meeting is to produce a detailed outline of the structure of the Synthesis and Assessment Product and to identify key areas of input and to create a list of potential contributing authors for these areas. Records under consideration will include, but not necessarily be limited to, paleo-records from tree rings, ice cores, lake sediments, pollen records, distributions of marine and terrestrial organisms as well as isotopic indicators measured on them, and the temporal evolution of terrestrial depositional and erosional environments. The agenda will focus on the key topics of the past record of change in Arctic sea ice extent, in the status of the Greenland ice sheet, paleo-temperature and paleo-precipitation records, and past intervals of rapid climate change. The meeting is open to the public at the times listed below. Pre-registration is required to attend. Contact the Designated Federal Officer (DFO) at the address given below by July 9, 2007 to pre-register and receive a copy of the meeting agenda. Public involvement in the meeting is encouraged.
