CH-QUAT Excursion 2022

Join us for the CH-QUAT annual excursion! The excursion will take place in the Sanetsch area (Valais) from 10th-11th of September 2022. It will cover different topics associated with Alpine quaternary geology, including among others glacial geology, periglacial processes, vegetation history, and more.

During the excursion we will be walking for about 3hrs/day. Because the site is located at an elevation between 2000-2500 m, the excursion may be subject to weather conditions. Final confirmation will be sent c. 3-4 days before. More details can be found on the flyer.

We are looking forward to seeing you again at this occasion. Please consider registering by email () before 15th of August 2022. The number of participants is limited. First come first served.


This year the SGM takes place on the 18th and 19th of November 2022.

Join us on Saturday, 19th of November 2022 for the Symposium 10 about "Quaternary environments: landscapes, climate, ecosystems and human activity during the past 2.6 million years".

We invite you to present your research at the SGM. Abstract submission is open until 31st of August 2022 on the conference homepage.
