Group

Quaternary Environments and Geoarchaeology

The Quaternary environments and geoarchaeology research group was established in 2004 following the arrival of three new physical geographers at The University of Manchester. We share a common interest and passion for Earth surface system dynamics and climate change over a range of timescales.
