Annual Discussion Meeting (ADM)

Annual Discussion Meetings are usually held over 2 to 3 days in early January. They are centred on a key scientific theme and draw national and international interest, with keynote speakers from around the world. In recent years themes have included; The Quaternary of Britain; The Last British Ice Sheet; Isotope and noble gas analysis; The Palaeolithic Occupation of Europe; Land-Ocean Correlation; and Constructing Quaternary Chronologies.

As climate changes, our environment and landscapes evolve in response. This presents a complex range of processes, interactions and challenged to ecosystems and human society. Understanding how landscapes have evolved during the Quaternary and the driving mechanisms behind these changes is important for increasing knowledge on earth-system, ecosystem and human behaviours and interaction and crucial for improving estimates of future environmental change. The aim of this QRA ADM is to explore the role of landscape change within a wide range of Quaternary-related sub-disciplines. Our goal is to bring together terrestrial, marine and coastal scientists, glaciologists, palaeoecologists, archaeologists, geochronologists, engineers and modellers with a range of perspectives on landscape, to explore recent developments in environmental change research and look towards future enviromental and landscape-related challenges.

Scientific themes include:

  • Evolving landscapes
  • Changing coastal and marine environments
  • Abrupt environmental change and extreme events
  • Human-landscape interactions
  • Towards the future
