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.
Alaska Stable Isotope Facility is hosting two fantastic talks of significant Quaternary interest :
- There and back again: Strontium isotopes provide insight into landscape use and migration of mammoths, mastodons, caribou, and other adventurers
- Eastern Beringian bison diet and paleoecology over the last 50,000 years
- Clarifying Mammalian Responses to Climate Change and Megafaunal Extinctions during the Pleistocene
