The Paleogene Period was a time of extremes and transitions, characterized by climatic conditions largely unfamiliar to us today but saw the rise of essentially modern continental configurations, biotic communities, and biogeochemical regimes.

CBEP2020 will provide a multidisciplinary stage with a focus on the exciting themes and topics (see ”Scientific themes”). We expect exciting scientific contributions, hot discussions, and new ideas.

The IODP Bremen Core Repository (BCR) at MARUM – Center for Marine Environmental Sciences of the University of Bremen holds sediment cores from over 89 expeditions. Explore beyond the Paleogene at CBEP2020!

We welcome you to participate and are looking forward meeting in in Bremen in late August/early September 2020!
