Carissimi Soci SGI,
Carissimi Soci Società Associate,

su indicazione della Professoressa Paola Petrosino (Università di Napoli), vi segnaliamo la call for abstract relativa alla sessione "Event stratigraphy of Late Pleistocene-Holocene marine sequences​", organizzata nell'ambito del congresso INQUA 2023.
Cordiali saluti,

La Segreteria

Dear all,
November 1, 2022 will be the deadline for submission of abstracts for the XXI INQUA Congress (Rome, July 14th - 20th, 2023 -
We would like to invite you to submit an abstract for the session 116 Event stratigraphy of Late Pleistocene-Holocene marine sequences.
The "event stratigraphy" approach results particularly effective to the study of marine successions in geodynamically and volcanic active areas. The repeated arrival of pyroclastic and volcanoclastic deposits via flows, fallout, submarine landslides, debris avalanche, turbidity currents generated during eruptions, volcano flank failures and earthquakes may play, in fact, a main role in the stratigraphic architecture of a basin and its coastal margins producing event beds or event horizons which punctuate the marine sequences. They mark isochronous events (depositional, non-depositional, erosional and biological) and, if widely distributed and multi-proxy resolved, they become fundamental to correlate archives both within and between depositional basins, thus providing a timing for a large range of scientific purposes. In this session, contributions from the fields of geochronology, tephrostratigraphy, micropaleontology, sedimentology, organic and inorganic geochemistry, stable isotopes, palaeomagnetism and seismic stratigraphy addressed to an integrated approach for the analysis of recent marine sequences are welcome.
