The Nordic Union for Quaternary Research (NORDQUA) is interested in the last 2.6 million years of Earth’s history (the Quaternary) – also known as the ‘Ice Age’. The aim of the Union is to encourage broad interdisciplinary cooperation and communication among Quaternary scientists in Norden, and especially to facilitate networking between young scientists. This is done through organizing joint field excursions and symposia, and by informing about student and job opportunities.

Joining the NORDQUA community is free, and includes a subscription to our email newsletter.
