The Micropalaeontological Society

Foram-Nanno 2018, 22nd June 2018, Edinburgh & St Andrews

The deadline for registration and abstract submission has been extended to 23.59pm, 18th May

The next Foraminifera and Nannofossil spring meeting will be hosted at the University of Edinburgh to coincide with the FORAMS2018 conference.

The theme for the 1 day meeting will be: Reconstructing past ocean environments with foraminifera and nannofossils

Foraminifera and nannofossils are extremely useful to academic and industrial micropaleontology as proxies for palaeoenvironmental, palaeoceanographic and palaeoclimatic research. Their abundance, presence in virtually all marine environments, and sensitivity to environmental alterations make them ideal recorders of past oceans and climate change. In this session we invite contributions (posters and talks) from micropalaeontologists working on nannofossils and fossil foraminiferal communities to highlight their use as tracers and to reconstruct environments of the past.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided throughout the day, and attendees of the TMsoc meeting will also be able to take part in the FORAMS2018 sessions and discussions held on the 22nd and vice versa.

FORAMS2018 attendees are also able to submit an additional abstract free of charge to the TMS session.

We particularly encourage abstracts from Nannofossil workers and Early Career researchers.

More details about travel and accommodation in Edinburgh can be found via the FORAMS2018 website.
