INQUA Dublin Quaternary glaciations: Processes, Sediments and Landforms

Lorna Linch

INQUA Dublin 2019 abstract submission is now open!


Please consider submitting an abstract to our session “Quaternary glaciations: Processes, Sediments and Landforms”


Cold region sediments and landforms provide important information about the dynamics, distribution and dimensions of ice sheets and glaciers. Some of these sediment-landform associations are known only from the palaeo-record: for example from drained lake floors, continental shelves, or from the former beds of large mid-latitude ice sheets. This record can be used to understand palaeo-ice-mass dynamics, reconstruct climate, and refine our understanding of the future response of ice sheets and glaciers to variations in climate. The aim of this session is to bring together researchers working on cold region sediments and/or landforms, with a view to reconstructing Quaternary glaciations. We invite contributions from those investigating both onshore and offshore cold region landforms/sediments at all scales (macro-, meso-, micro-), and from all parts of the world. Studies adopting a multi-disciplinary approach (e.g. field, laboratory, remote sensing, GIS and modelling techniques) are particularly welcome.


We look forward to seeing you there!
