American Quaternary Association

 The American Quaternary Association (AMQUA) is a professional organization of North American scientists devoted to studying all aspects of the Quaternary Period, about the last 2.6 million years of Earth history. Studying the Quaternary is critically important because it has been a time of frequent and dramatic environmental changes, exemplified by growing and decaying continental ice sheets and mountain glaciers. Beyond understanding the forces that shaped our modern environment, studying the Quaternary Period is significant because the environmental changes accompanying past ice ages were the backdrop for global changes in floral and faunal communities, including extinction of a diverse mega fauna, and for the evolution of modern humans and their dispersal throughout the world. The American Quaternary Association (AMQUA) is a professional organization of North American scientists devoted to studies of the quaternary geological period.

AMQUA was founded primarily to foster cooperation and communication among the remarkably broad array of disciplines involved in studying the Quaternary Period. Major activities include a biennial meeting, professional awards, partnership with INQUA (the International Quaternary Association), and the Quaternary Times newsletter.

AMQUA is governed by a Council composed of elected officers and two elected representatives (Councilors) from each of the following broad disciplinary groups:

  • Terrestrial Geoprocesses
  • Marine Geoprocesses
  • Geohistory
  • Paleobiology
  • Geochronology-Geochemistry-Geophysics
  • Archaeology and Anthropology
  • Paleoclimatology

The editors of Quaternary Times and Quaternary Research sit as Ex-Officio Council members.

Benefits of membership in AMQUA include participation in Executive and Councilor elections and reduced registration fees for Biennial Meetings.
