Prof. Gregory Price and I have just come back from the IMS 2017 meeting that was held in Toulouse, France from the 10 to the 12 of October. The meeting had an extraordinary participation in term of number of delegates, which were more than 1500, coming from all over the World.
On Tuesday the 11th I gave a presentation on our research on the Sundance entitled "Integrating sequence stratigraphy and stable isotope geochemistry to reconstruct environmental and climate change in the Jurassic Sundance Seaway". The session, "Jurassic-Cretaceous climates, (bio)-events and paleogeography: from data to modelling", hosted many many interesting talks on Jurassic climate and ecosystems. In the same session Prof. Gregory Price presented on "Stable isotope analyses of belemnite rostra from the Pliensbachian Toarcian boundary: implications for surface water conditions during deposition", talk that was very positively received by the audience.
On Wednesday the 12th, I presented a poster specifically on the sedimentologic and sequences stratigraphic work on the Sundance, entitled "Evolution of a carbonate-evaporite-siliciclastic system in the distal part of a retroarc foreland basin: Middle-Late Jurassic Sundance Seaway, USA".
Congratulations to the organizers for the successful conference!
Toulouse is a beautiful city.
