Reading Climate History Through the Chemistry of Shells
June 2, 10:00 A.M. - Room 111
A multidisciplinary group of scientists (geochemists, micropaleontologists, oceanographers, ecologists) has been studying Earth's climate history over various time scales. By analyzing the shells of certain crustaceans, they have been able to calculate changes in ocean alkalinity and the temperature and salinity of lake and ocean waters and also infer rainfall amounts in various regions. They can thereby determine which climate changes were global and which were regional. They have also reached conclusions about the impact of past climate change on lakes, oceans, forests, and other ecosystems.

The South China Sea Monsoon Experiment
June 2, 11:00 A.M. - Room 111
This experiment (SCSMEX) has demonstrated an inverse relationship between tropical convection in the South China Sea and the disastrous Yangtze River flood of 1998. When the Yangtze River region is wet, the South China Sea region is dry. Delay in the onset of the monsoon may be a precursor of Yangtze flooding. Scientists from China, the United States, Japan, and Taiwan participated in this project.
