This is a guest post by Florian Muthreich, PhD student at the Department of Biology, University of Bergen. In May the third PAGES Young Scientist Meeting took place in Morillo de Tou, Spain, and I joined ~80 early career scientist from over 20 countries to network, present our work, exchange ideas and find new friends.
Loess Lovers! The new LL is here now! LL vol. 73. “The Secondary Carbonate issue” “Secondary carbonates are sensitive paleoenvironmental indicators: not just their stable carbon and oxygen isotope composition provides information about former environmental conditions, but their morphology and distribution along the sequence. Primary carbonate content of loess derives from calcite and dolomite crystals,
Every year the INQUA Executive Committee (EC) meets to make business decisions and meet Quaternary scientists in Member countries. The second Intercongress EC meeting took place from 3rd to 8th of March 2017 in Budapest (Hungary). We are very grateful to our host Dr. Enikö Magyari from the Dept. of Physical and Applied Geology, Eötvös Loránd
We are looking for a new TERPRO representative for the INQUA-ECR Committee (ECR: Early Career Researcher, https://www.inqua.org/ecr.html), during the present inter-congress period. One of the ECR representatives for TERPRO Commision (Nadine Hoffmann; Haifa University, Israel) is stepping down from the ECR Committee, because she found a new job. INQUA defines ECRs as graduate students and
INTAV is an International focus group within INQUA that has been both a driver and vehicle for one of the major avenues for the advancement of Quaternary science in recent times: developments in the science, methodology, and application of tephrochronology. Tephrochronology is the use of primary tephra layers or cryptotephra deposits as isochronous beds to connect
Sometimes we researchers work as if operating inside a bubble. Our outlook of the importance of our research questions and the results of our efforts are aimed only at the scientific community or even more myopically within our specific subfields. We can lose sight of how our work might be of interest to the outside
