The International Union for Quaternary Research (INQUA) pursues to improve understanding on environmental change during the glacial ages through interdisciplinary research. Each year, delegates from around the world gather for the INQUA congress. This year marks the 20th edition of the event that took place in Dublin, Ireland, from 25 to 31 July.

The Instituto Dom Luiz (IDL) had a strong presence at the INQUA 2019 congress. Below you’ll find a program of INQUA events featured by researcher of the IDL. The full official program can be found here.
