Quaternary Science is the multi-disciplinary study of geological, biological, climatological and human systems of the past two million years (the Quaternary Period), and the evolution of these systems into present conditions on Earth. The Alaska Quaternary Center (AQC) is committed to the promotion of interdisciplinary research and the enhancement of interdisciplinary instruction in Quaternary sciences.
We are very happy to announce that the AQC has a new director. Dr. Mat Wooller of WERC/SFOS has taken over the reins; he can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
