 NE Quaternary Association (NEQUA)


The North East Quaternary Association (NEQUA) is an informal organisation of geographers, geologists, archaeologists, botanists and others interested in the Quaternary. The NEQUA began in 2000 when Quaternary scientists at the Universities of Durham, Newcastle and Northumbria launched a series of annual seminars focussing on Quaternary research. Our members are drawn mainly from Durham, Newcastle and Northumbria Universities but we welcome other organisations or individuals with an interest in Quaternary science.

We run a series of seminars, outreach and public events to publicise Quaternary science in relation to contemporary environmental and climate change issues. An interactive guide to sites of interest in the north-east of England for Quaternary Science is under development, and will provide additional information on teaching resources, possible field trips, and sources of further information.

To find out more or to join our mailing lists to keep up to date with events, please contact Sarah Woodroffe ( (Durham University), Neil Ross ( (Newcastle University) or Emma Hocking ( (Northumbria University).
