Hear a wide range of topics from both poles
Although Quaternary history and other paleoenvironmental fields have traditionally been at the core of the Workshop, sessions have expanded over time to include a range of Arctic and Antarctic topics such as climate, permafrost, atmospheric chemistry, environmental geochemistry, archeology, geomorphology, hydrology, glaciology, soils, ecology, and oceanography.
