the quaternary period spans the last 2.6 million years of the earth’s history. the quaternary is an interval with dramatic and frequent changes in global climate. INQUA aims to promote improved communication and international collaboration in experimental and applied aspects of quaternary research, in order to contribute in practical ways to an evaluation of the scale and rates of global environmental changes during the recent geological past.
