Richard Streeter presents poster at the Quaternary Research Association's 50th anniversary

Monday 20 January 2014

Richard Streeter attended the annual meeting of the Quaternary Research Association which celebrated the societies 50th anniversary at the Royal Geographical Society in London on the 7-9th of January 2014.

The theme of the conference was to highlight the revolutions in our understanding of the Quaternary period (the last 2.5 million years) over the last 50 years, from radiocarbon dating to the use of ancient DNA. Richard presented a poster entitled “High-Resolution Tephrochronology for reconstructing spatial patterns of land surface change”. The poster summarised research conducted with Andrew Dugmore (University of Edinburgh) that will shortly appear as a paper in the journal Quaternary Science Reviews. He was supported by early career funding from the Scottish Alliance for Geoscience, Environment and Society (SAGES) to attend the conference.
