Carboniferous Stratigraphy meeting continued
The Subcommission on Carboniferous Stratigraphy held a meeting, “The Kasimovian Workshop,” on May 24-27, 2021. The meeting was organized by William DiMichele, Spencer Lucas, Xiangdong Wang, and Stanislav Opluštil. The pandemic restrictions made impossible the original plan for an in-person meeting in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. Consequently, the meeting was run on a Zoom platform sponsored by the Smithsonian Institution.
The meeting brought together about 40 scientists from North America, Europe, Asia, and South America to discuss diverse aspects of the Middle-Late Pennsylvanian transition, much of it focused on the Kasimovian Age of the Late Pennsylvanian. Topics ranged from the relevant portion of the geological timescale, to physical parameters (tectonics, climate, glaciation, dust, etc.), to biotic events on land and in the sea.
