Annual Discussion Meeting (ADM)

Annual Discussion Meetings are usually held over 2 to 3 days in early January. They are centred on a key scientific theme and draw national and international interest, with keynote speakers from around the world. In recent years themes have included; The Quaternary of Britain; The Last British Ice Sheet; Isotope and noble gas analysis; The Palaeolithic Occupation of Europe; Land-Ocean Correlation; and Constructing Quaternary Chronologies.

Quaternary climate feedbacks, tipping points and shifts in system states are important areas of current research (highlighted by the IPCC, and with RCUK developing funding calls on these themes) as they provide relevant analogues for our currently evolving climate. The conference will be broad in scope, capturing the range of interests of the members of the QRA, but we will particularly welcome abstract submissions in the areas of:

• Ice, oceans and sea level• Ecosystems• Quaternary carbon cycling• State shifts and abrupt changes• Recent advances in Quaternary Geochronology• Implications of Quaternary Science for the Earths Future

Registration is now open, until 29th November 2019

Abstract deadline is 31st October 2019
