Northern Hemisphere INTIMATE meetings
During the 2007-2011 inter-congress period,
several international workshops and associated symposia are planned. It is
anticipated that the results obtained within the framework of the Northern
Hemisphere INTIMATE project will be presented in a thematic symposium session
during INQUA Bern. Additionally, we have planned to present a joint global
synthesis together with the Southern Hemisphere INTIMATE project in order to
establish correlations between the global key records for the last 30ka from
the different regions.

4th INTIMATE Workshop, Kangerlussuaq, Greenland,
21-28 August 2000
INTIMATE held its 4th International Workshop in Kangerlussuaq, Greenland,
from 21-28 August, 2000. The objectives of the meeting were: a) to standardise
procedures for the calibration and publication of Late-glacial radiocarbon
dates, b) to compare new palaeoenvironmental
data-sets for the Last Termination at a common (calibrated to calendar or
ice-core years) timescale. The meeting was attended by 31 INTIMATE project
members from 9 European countries. The proceedings have been published in Quaternary Science Reviews 20 (2001)

Midnight Sun 5th INTIMATE International
'Improving the reliability of correlations between
marine, terrestrial and ice-core sequences for the Last Termination'
INTIMATE held its 5th
International Workshop in Tromsø, Norway,
from 22-28 June 2002. The workshop was organised by the Norwegian Polar
Institute and University
The meeting was organised by N. Koc, M. Hald, T. Vorren and S. Bondevik, and was attended by 36 INTIMATE project members
representing 12 countries. The theme of the workshop was ‘Improving the reliability of correlations between marine, terrestrial
and ice core sequences.’ The
workshop, attended by most members of the INTIMATE steering group, also
provided an opportunity for review and planning of INTIMATE’s

INTIMATE held its ‘6th
International Workshop during the XVIth
INQUA Congress in Reno, Nevada on July 2003. The workshop was attended
by 33 scientists from 14 countries. During that meeting it was proposed that
Wim Hoek, presently the Secretary of the INTIMATE project, should take over
from John Lowe as Co-ordinator of INTIMATE with effect from 1st
January, 2004. Zicheng Yu of Lehigh
University, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania
has volunteered to succeed Wim Hoek as Secretary of the INTIMATE project from 1st
7th International (North
Atlantic) INTIMATE workshop, Bonn,
14-19 September, 2004
During the 7th International (first North
Atlantic) INTIMATE workshop in the Eifel region, Germany, held in September 15-18,
2004, new developments were presented and plans were made for future meetings
and the associated research agenda. This workshop, and associated excursion to
the Eifel Volcanic Field and the type locality of the Laacher
See Tephra was hosted by Thomas Litt
(Friedrich-Wilhelms University, Bonn) and attended by 38 participants
from 12 different countries.

8th International (North Atlantic) INTIMATE workshop, Mýrdalur, 10-14 September, 2005
The 8th North Atlantic INTIMATE Workshop was held
from September 10-14, 2005 in Iceland.
Our local organiser, Jón Eiríksson
(along with Arny Sveinbjornsdottir,
Olafur Ingolfsson, and Sigfus Johnsen) arranged a
fantastic workshop venue in Hotel Höfðabrekka
in Vik, near Myrdalsjokull,
200 km east of Reykjavik.
During the excursion on September 10th, lead by Jon Eiriksson,
Olafur Ingolfson and Gudrum Larsen, we experienced sunny weather (as usual) and
visited some Icelandic highlights as well as the volcanic and glaciated terrain
on our way to Vik. The workshop was attended by 28
participants from 8 different countries, representing the ice-core, marine,
terrestrial, tephra, 14C-dating tree-ring and climate modelling community.
One of the outcomes of the meeting is a Special Paper and Special Issue
containing a selection of the papers presented during the workshop.
The proceedings (programme and abstracts) can be downloaded here (pdf).
