Once every four years, Quaternary researchers from all over the world meet at the INQUA Congress to exchange the latest research results and develop agendas for the years to come. In 2015, the Congress will take place in Nagoya, Japan. The knowledge gained from Quaternary research, particularly from past records of unusual events and abrupt changes, is invaluable for understanding nature and taking appropriate actions to mitigate natural risks.

This third workshop of the PALeo constraints on SEA level rise 2 (PALSEA2) working group builds upon and complements previous workshops by focussing on the integration of data and models to better understand and constrain past changes in sea level, the cryosphere and climate with a primary aim to produce more accurate projections of future changes in ice extent and sea level. As in previous PALSEA2 workshops, a focus will be on data and modeling for past warm periods when ice extent was similar to or less than that at present (e.g.

We would like to draw your attention to the XII International Symposium on Antarctic Earth Sciences, a SCAR initiative, to be held in Goa during 13-17 July 2015. We are inviting abstracts for session 16: Interactions between cryosphere, atmosphere and oceans in coastal Antarctica. The abstract submission is now open (www.isaes2015goa.in). This session aims to integrate latest results on past, current and future changes in coastal Antarctica from a range of disciplines to identify knowledge gaps and suggest future priorities.
