This quantity is one final result of the sixth foreign convention on Paleoceano­ graphy (ICP VI). The convention used to be held August 23-28, 1998 in Lisbon, Portugal. The assembly the normal layout of a small variety of invited oral shows complemented via a mess ofcontributed posters. Over 550 contributors attended, representing thirty international locations and approximately 450 posters have been awarded. The invited audio system addressed the most issues of the 5oral classes. The consultation themes have been: Polar-Tropical and Interhemisphere Linkages; Does the sea reason, or reply to, Abrupt Climatic Changes?; Biotic Responses to significant Paleoceanographic adjustments; prior hot Climates; and concepts In tracking Ocean heritage. this is often the 1st time in ICP historical past that the convention complaints are released. the purpose of the organisers with the ebook of this publication is two-fold: to supply an invaluable evaluation of the sphere and to record the ideas/controversies raised throughout the con­ ference which could stimulate destiny paintings. The e-book displays the preliminary intentions of the convention, however it isn't really a conven­ tional convention complaints, provided that the papers were reviewed by way of formal exter­ nal referees. all of the convention subject matters is brought by means of a evaluate article designed to summarize the cutting-edge in each one subject matter by means of articles ready by way of the invited audio system. As with such a lot convention complaints, each one subject is roofed heterogenously. a few issues have all of the anticipated contributions, others are much less good covered.
