We’re delighted to announce, students from Sprigg Geobiology Centre were successful at the recent Australasian Quaternary Association (AQUA) biennial conference held in Canberra. Adelaide University was one of the most successful institution at the awards.
AQUA was formed in 1987, by a small group of researchers at a conference in Mildura, Victoria, Australia. It aims to bring together researchers that study the Quaternary climate and landscape changes in the diverse and spectacular Australasian region, which extends from Antarctica to the tropics. The organisation aims to provide a forum for Quaternary Researchers working in this region to collaborate.
