La sessione P15 del congresso SIMP-SGI-SOGEI (Parma, 16-19 settembre, 2019; VAI AL SITO), co-organizzata dalla SPI, è intitolata Geobiology: Biosphere-Earth interactions.
La deadline per la sottomissione degli abstract è fissata al 20 maggio 2019.
Potrete trovare le informazioni utili per la sottomissione a questo link.
Considerando l'ampiezza del tema proposto dalla sessione e le tante possibili interazioni disciplinari, contiamo sull'interesse di molti.
Grazie, a presto

P15. Geobiology: Biosphere-Earth interactions
Conveners: Roberto Barbieri (Bologna), Cesare Corselli (Milano Bicocca)
The biosphere-geosphere interaction begins when the first living organism appears in the waters of the planet. This phenomenon has continued to modify the Earth's surface, bringing it to the current ecosystem status. In the last years there has been a reconsideration of the role of biota (especially microorganisms) in influencing geological, environmental, and climatological dynamics over varying spatial and temporal scales. This is the field of geobiology a rapidly advancing field that aims at understanding the many interrelations between physical processes and organisms in different environmental settings, from subaerial to marine, and down to the deep drilled rocks. The interactions occurring between geosphere and biosphere may also provide clues for deciphering evolutionary events experienced by the early life. We solicit presentations from the broad spectrum of geological, biological and geochemical themes that approach the study of geobiology for understanding the fossil record and what it can detect about the history of life on Earth. Space exploration is also opening up new scenarios where geobiology could play a significant role.
