      The Quaternary Research Center was established in to foster such interdisciplinary studies on a cooperative basis. The center has the following goals: To understand environments and climate changes of the past two and a half million years in the context of modern surface processes, which include historical changes, prehistoric postglacial environments, and Ice Age events.

      Geoarchaeology is an interdisciplinary journal published six times per year (in January, March, May, July, September and November). It presents the results of original research at the methodological and theoretical interface between archaeology and the geosciences and includes within its scope: interdisciplinary work focusing on understanding archaeological sites, their environmental context. Pedology and Late Quaternary Environments Surrounding Harappa: A Review and Synthesis. Ronald Amundson. Pakistan) suggest that a wealth of research opportunities exists for earth scientists interested in contributing to an understanding of the origins and later decline of the Indus civilization.

      Quaternary science is an inter-disciplinary field of study focusing on the Quaternary period, which encompasses the last million years. The field studies the current ice age and the recent interstadial, between numerous glaciations, the Holocene, and uses proxy evidence to reconstruct the past environments during this period to infer the climatic and environmental changes that have occurred.

Ostracods are small aquatic crustaceans that secrete shells or valves made of calcite, which are often preserved in Quaternary.

Pedology (from Greek: πέδον, pedon, "soil"; and λόγος, logos, "study") is the study of soils in their natural environment. It is one of two main branches of soil science, the other being gy deals with pedogenesis, soil morphology, and soil classification, while edaphology studies the way soils influence plants, fungi, and other living things.

Chadwick's research interests include pedology, soil geomorphology, soil geochemistry, quaternary geology, organic and mineral fluxes during soil, atmoshpere, water and vegetation interaction. Dr. Chadwick has established himself as a leader in soil science, and is one of the world leaders in relating soils to ecology and earth system science.This publication resulting from the symposium presents the latest concepts and research findings cocerning the importance of regolith materials in pedology.

DARRELL W. NELSON. President. Soil Science Society of America. Preface. Traditionally, in pedology the focus has been on the soil survey and the information requirements of the soil survey.

Soil stratigraphy or pedostratigraphy is a way of grouping and correlating sediments and rocks based on soil-related, or pedogenic, criteria. This contrasts with lithostratigraphy (classification based on lithological characteristics such as color or grain size), chronostratigraphy (classification based on age of deposits or rocks), and biostratigraphy (classification based on biological.
