Scientific Program

Throughout its history each CBEP conference has highlighted current themes at the cutting edge of Paleogene science, ranging from the definition of key stratigraphic designations to emerging understanding of transient climate events to global trends and transitions in the marine and terrestrial ecosystems. The 2020 meeting will feature a set of thematic and general sessions that emphasizes our growing understanding of connectivity among Earth Systems and the power of well-resolved, well-dated stratigraphic records, novel proxies, and quantitative modeling to probe these connections.

5 overarching themes have been identified for CBEP2020:

  •  Habitable Planet: Learning from Past Environments
  •  Climate, Paleoecology and Paleodiversity
  •  Biogeochemical Cycles
  •  Tectonics, Surface Environments and Hydrological Processes
  •  New developments, applications and results of Paleoproxies
