Researchers from around the world meet at the UIB to analyze changes in sea level during the last interglacial stage

The research group in Karst, Sedimentology, Coastal Geomorphology and Fluvial Geomorphology at the University of the Balearic Islands and the Karst group at the University of South Florida have organized the workshop Sea Level Changes Into MIS 5: from Observation to Prediction, dedicated to study sea level changes during the last interglacial stage (marine isotope stage 5, MIS 5), approximately between 80,000 and 135,000 years ago.

The event brought together 44 prominent researchers from around the world in Palma to discuss the problems with observations and their correlation with the predictions of theoretical models, and to promote collaboration opportunities on aspects of the Sea level data acquisition, their calibration and their modeling.

The workshop, which has had financial support from the National Science Foundation (USA) and the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, has consisted of two days of presentations and discussions, accompanied by invited lectures, which can be viewed through CanalUIB. In addition, attendees have dedicated two days to visit some karst cavities and outcrops of the upper Pleistocene coastal deposits around Majorca.
