Quaternary geology is a branch of scientific study focused on the geological events and processes that have taken place during the Quaternary period. Spanning approximately the last 2.6 million years to the present, this period is characterized by significant climate variations, the occurrence of multiple ice ages, and the emergence and evolution of modern humans. By consolidating recent research, the book enables scientists, researchers, and scholars to remain up to date with the latest advancements and discoveries in the field of Quaternary geology. It covers various aspects of this discipline, including stratigraphy (the study of rock layers), paleoclimatology (reconstructing past climates), glacial geology (the study of glaciers and ice ages), sedimentology (the study of sediments), geomorphology (the study of landforms), and the examination ofpast ecosystems and their dynamics. The book serves as an indispensable reference for individuals interested in comprehending the geological history and climate dynamics of the Quaternary period and their implications for our planet. It provides a holistic overview of the subject, incorporating multidisciplinary approaches and a wide range of research perspectives.
