2012 AMQUA Biennial Meeting Theme:
From Floods to Droughts: Water, Climate Variability, and their Impacts in the Holocene
Fresh water is a vital resource and a critical component of the Earth System; the Duluth AMQUA meeting, located on the shores of Lake Superior, provides an ideal opportunity for the American Quaternary community to consider the roles that water has played in the warm world of the Holocene - and could play in the future.

American Quaternary Association (AMQUA)
AMQUA is a professional organization of North American scientists devoted to studying all aspects of the Quaternary Period, the last 2 million years of Earth history. The Quaternary Period is significant because the Ice Age environmental changes associated with the growth and decay of continental glaciers were the backdrop for global changes in floral and faunal communities, including extinction of diverse megafauna, and for the evolution of modern humans and their dispersal throughout the world.
