The INQUA Congress is held every four years and is the principal global meeting on all aspects of the Quaternary, the most recent geological period. The Quaternary covers a time of dramatic climate change and the formation of soils and deposits that are of immediate relevance to society and industry through agriculture, civil engineering, mining and energy applications, and the shaping and development of our landscape. The theme of the INQUA 2019 Congress is “Life on the Edge”. INQUA has five permanent Commissions which coordinate global research in the following topic areas: Coastal and Marine Processes Palaeoclimate Terrestrial Processes, Deposits and History Humans and Biosphere Stratigraphy and Chronology Quaternary research also provides a direct understanding of geological change including sedimentation and deposition of rock layers and natural energy resources. Applied Quaternary Geology is therefore very relevant for the Mining and Energy sectors, Geotechnology, Water and Hydrogeology, land surveys and planning and large-scale engineering projects. The Congress consists of a lecture programme from world experts, field trips and excursions to sites of interest, an exhibition of information from related organisations and industry partners and organised social events and other activities. Typical attendance is an international audience of 3,000 people.
