DEUQUA "Connecting Geoarchives" 2022 in Potsdam

The DEUQUA2020 “Connecting Geoarchives” will be postponed to September 25-29, 2022 due to the restrictions on infection prevention and the prevailing desire for a face-to-face event with fieldtrips. Registration for DEUQUA2020 in 2022 will be activated in spring 2022. The latest information is available via the conference homepage

Communinty. Exchange. Research

The German Quaternary Association (Deutsche Quartärvereinigung, DEUQUA e.V.) is the official union of German speaking Quaternary scientists. The aim of the Association is to support Quaternary science, to present it to the public, to intensify contacts to the applied sciences, and to provide advice to public and political authorities on issues related to Quaternary science. Furthermore, the Association supports networking among Quaternary scientists and related organizations worldwide.

E&G Quaternary Science Journal

DEUQUA publishes the peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary open-access journal E&G Quaternary Science Journal twice per year.

EGQSJ publishes peer-reviewed articles and express reports, as well as thesis abstracts related to Quaternary geology, paleo-environments, paleo-ecology, soil science, paleo-climatology, geomorphology, geochronology, archaeology, and geoarchaeology focussing on, but not limited to, research from central Europe.

Melbourne searching for mammoth

We all love the Mammoth at DEUQUA. Our group of Quaternary Scientists here at Melbourne has therefore wondered how Mammoth can contribute to our scientific delight - even post-mortem: With a stable isotope approach we are trying to extract paleoenvironmental data from their teeth (mainly molars) ranging from millennial to sub-annual and even sub-seasonal (!!) timescales. Unfortunately, Mammoth never made it to Australia, so we are hoping for your collaboration:

Do any of you Quaternary colleagues around central Europe have access to Mammoth molars from the last glacial cycle, or possibly know of collections that we could work with? Any comment, suggestion or advice is very welcome – please just get in touch via email (

Our best regards from the Southern Hemisphere,

Jan-Hendrik "Henne" May and group (University of Melbourne).


Phd position @ JLU Giessen

The announced PhD position is part of the DFG-funded project "Chronology of fluvial erosion. - A scenario of quaternary geodynamics from the model region Baza/Guadix". The research project aims at the reconstruction of the middle- to late-Pleistocene evolution of the fluvial system in the Baza Basin (Cuenca de Baza/Guadix) in the north-eastern part of Andalusia (Spain).
