Quaternary geology is the branch of geology that study developments from million years ago onwards. In particular Quaternary geology study the process and deposits that developed during the Quaternary, a period characterized by glacial-interglacial cycles.

Quaternary geology has developed over time from being originally a branch of historical geology to becoming a science. This book deals with various interesting aspects of the histories of geomorphology and Quaternary geology in different parts of the world.

The papers cover a range of topics: the origin of the term 'Quaternary', histories of ideas and debates relating to aspects of fluvial geomorphology (USA and Australia), glacial geomorphology and glaciation (Northern Europe. Three chapters provide the first major review of Quaternary vegetation changes in South America (primarily the Andes) deduced from palaeoecological data.

The final chapter weaves most of the environmental threads together in an overall synthesis of the Quaternary of South America. The book is lavishly illustrated with photographs and line by: Quaternary Geochronology is an international journal devoted to the publication of the highest-quality, peer-reviewed articles on all aspects of dating methods applicable to the Quaternary Period - the last million years of Earth history.

Reliable ages are fundamental to place changes in climates, landscapes, flora and fauna - including the evolution and ecological. Quaternary geology. The Earth's youngest period, the Quaternary, includes the last 2–3 million years and is characterized by several glaciations and warmer interglacial intervals.

The cause of the climatic changes is probably to be found in the Earth's Quaternary geology parameters, which result in lower summer insolation in the northern hemisphere.

Quaternary geology. The Quaternary is the most recent period in the Earth’s history: the last million years.

It is marked by the appearance of man as well as repeated glacial/interglacial cycles, which strongly influenced the mountains and their environment.

The three major sections of this volume include six chapters describing the regional Quaternary geology of Canada, two describing the Quaternary geology and climatic history of Greenland, and six that review applied Quaternary geology in Canada, including chapters on paleobotanical analysis, geodynamics, geomorphic processes, terrain geochemistry, Quaternary resources.

The Quaternary period covers the period directly preceding the modern age, and therefore Quaternary geology is closely linked with the scientific disciplines that study the present-day face of the earth and the existing organic world: geomorphology, climatology, soil science, zoology, botany, archaeology, engineering geology, and other disciplines.

Quaternary Geology is a discipline that deals with the youngest period in Earth's history -- circa the past million years. This period is characterized by major climate fluctuations and transitions between glacial and inter-glacial periods.

Quaternary (/ k w ə ˈ t ɜːr n ə r i, ˈ k w ɒ t. ər ˌ n ɛr. i / kwə-TUR-nə-ree, KWOT-ər-nerr-ee) is the current and most recent of the three periods of the Cenozoic Era in the geologic time scale of the International Commission on Stratigraphy (ICS).

STRUCTURE OF THE VOLUME AND TERMINOLOGY USED This book contains scientific descriptions of 63 localities (Figure A) of at least national importance for Quaternary geology, geomorphology and.

Quaternary Geology and Geomorphology of South America is a massive, interestingly written, but expensive volume that covers exactly what its title suggests. In spite of the paucity of information on many aspects of the Quaternary geology of this continent, which extends from north of the equator nearly to the Antarctic, the author has succeeded.

This is especially true where geomorphology is the main tool. Räsänen et al. () argued that formal stratigraphical classifications are applied less regularly to Quaternary records, compared with pre-Quaternary geology, because the Quaternary research community is segregated into different schools of geology and geography.
