Abstract: This 2005 NZ-INTIMATE workshop aims to continue on with the themes and objectives as collectively agreed upon at the 2004 meeting. Now that various records have been assembled and placed on the same time-scale, various terrestrial and marine records will be discussed and prioritised in order to establish a climate event stratigraphy for New Zealand over the last 30,000 years. This outcome will assist in the correlation of New Zealand records with those from the wider Australasian region and elsewhere. Seventeen papers will be presented that describe the very latest NZ INTIMATE-related research. There will also be an opportunity to collectively discuss key issues that affect high resolution correlations between key records (i.e. tephra ages) as well as highlight gaps in our records and deficiencies in our understanding so that we can target both a limited number of new records to develop and to re-examine some existing key records. The ultimate goal is the establishment of an Australasian-INTIMATE climate event stratigraphy by the NZ and Australian paleoclimate research communities for presentation at the 2007 INQUA Cairns Symposium.
