I attended this meeting last September in Bristol Zoo (yes, time was found to visit the penguins!). The Pliocene (5.33 - 2.6 million years ago) represents a geological time interval with a climate comparable to predictions for the 21st century and provides an opportunity to explore feedbacks and processes in the Earth System that we will be experiencing within the next 100 years. The video on the webpage is a good example of outreach from what was a jam-packed meeting!

My contributions to the study of Pliocene (5.33 - 2.6 million years ago) have been rather small, but I do have a cameo in the video!
