Quaternary research from and inspired by the first virtual DEUQUA conference
Editor(s): Julia Meister, Hans von Suchodoletz, and Christian Zeeden
Despite the Covid‐19 pandemic, Quaternary research is continuously making progress, as impressively demonstrated at the vDEUQUA2021 conference held online in September–October 2021. Based on the large number of contributions presented during that conference, this special issue aims to pool contributions that have advanced Quaternary research in recent years in the fields of climate and environmental change, human–environment interactions, and new methods and concepts. Submissions from young researchers are especially welcome.
