Draft programme

Flyer

This meeting aims to bring together researchers across the broad range of sub-disciplines within Quaternary science. This will enable the sharing of ideas, approaches to data-model inter-comparisons including dealing with uncertainties, and the dissemination of research across the discipline. There have been major recent advances in Quaternary research in both data and modelling approaches and the conference aims to highlight these. Sessions will be arranged around topics and it is envisaged that these will include both data and modelling presentations, which will encourage and provide opportunity for discussion and initiate collaboration. We welcome the submission of abstracts on topics that use a data approach, a modelling approach or that integrates both approaches. Therefore, if you are engaged in, or interested in learning more about, data-model inter-comparison in the field of Quaternary Science, we would encourage you to attend.

Scientific themes
• Intercomparisons between climate modelling and palaeoclimate reconstructions
• Glacial system modelling and glacial geomorphology
• Long-term ecology, ecological processes and biodiversity
• Human / environment interactions including refining and testing models of anthropogenic land cover change
• Palaeohydrology and long-term landscape evolution.
• Past and future sea-level change

Confirmed speakers: Chris Clark (Sheffield), Marie-Jose Gaillard-Lemdahl (Linnaeus), Roland Gehrels (York)
