A series of 50 minute lectures, followed by discussion, on the broad topic of environmental evolution, climate, ecological and human change during the Quaternary (the last ~2.6 million years). The lectures are aimed at a broad audience (including geoscientists, glaciologists, environmental scientists, atmospheric chemists, biologists, anthropologists and archaeologists).

Seminars are usually held on Thursdays starting at 17:30 in Clare College in the Latimer Room (on the left in the first court). Wine is served after the talks and there is time for discussion over drinks and/or dinner.

QDG is currently organised by Rachael Rhodes (; Department of Earth Sciences), and Della Murton (; Department of Zoology). Please feel free to contact the organisers with queries and suggestions.
