The annual CH-QUAT Meeting and general assembly 2014 took place on March 22, 2014 between 08:30 - 16:00 at the Institute of Geological Sciences, University of Bern (Baltzerstrasse 3, 3012 Bern).
Topic: "Quaternary Stratigraphy of the Swiss Foreland"
The theme of the meeting was the Quaternary evolution of the Swiss Alpine Foreland with a special focus on the sedimentary archives and on the reconstruction of their chronology. The goal was to provide an update on the ongoing research on these archives, especially on the efforts on dating these by applying different techniques/approaches. Therefore, we allocated time for the talks to the invited speakers from universities, governmental institutions and private companies. In addition to the invited talks, students (BSc/MSc/PhD) and young scientists, presented their ongoing research in the poster session.
