quaternary studies Spring 2003 Mar 05 (7) Obsidiancase studies (economy andideology). MID-TERM BREAK. Mar 19 (8) Obsidian-dating technology (obsidian
Scope: An interdisciplinary geoarchaeology graduate course focused on: (1) methods, problems and successes of determining provenance of artifacts (i.e. the geologic-geographic location, site, or mine that is the origin of the raw material) and (2) the inferred human  behavior, including lithic procurement, raw material exchange, tool production, use, and discard, as illustrated through archaeological case studies. The geology component will cover how the rocks are formed and examine the methods of determining major element and trace element compositions, isotopes, diagnostic minerals or mineral assemblages, microfossils, geophysical parameters and in some locations, dating. The archaeological component will examine the application of lithic sourcing technologies to research questions of prehistoric behavior.  Specifically, we will look at ways in which prehistoric peoples obtained lithic materials, produced stone tools, and exchanged raw material or finished products.  We will also briefly explore more complex questions regarding economy, territoriality, ideology, and decision-making processes. Finally, we will explore the utility of dating technologies for lithic materials from archaeological contexts. Faculty Team:  Gail Ashley (co-ordinator), Carolyn Dillian,, Jack Harris, Craig Feibel, Natasha Malyk-Selivanova.  Possible faculty contributors: Carl Swisher, Michael Carr.

human sciences research
Research in the Human Sciences Division is focused on ways of life in southern Africa as revealed in Quaternary fossil and sub-fossil, archaeological and ethnographic records. The results of this research are communicated through professional and popular publications, exhibitions and formal and informal education programmes. Researchers and post-graduate students from South Africa and abroad are encouraged to undertake research on the collections and to make use of available facilities ( see Use of Collections
current research in quaternary studies and archaeology
Quaternary research, which overlaps significantly with archaeological research, concerns aspects of past faunas, biodiversity and palaeoecology, which provide contextual information for understanding aspects of human development. Archaeological research at the South African Museum is mainly concerned with understanding human technological and cultural development, behaviour and palaeo-ecology, the use of natural resources, subsistence strategies and other activities during the Stone Age period. Quaternary palaeo-environmental and palaeo-ecological research in the Earth Sciences Division also complements these studies.

of environmental and climatic history the heart of quaternary studies. I feel that this award is an award to the essence of quaternary studies,
Speech given to the American Quaternary Association at Flagstaff: May 2nd, 1996
But to get back to careers. Radiocarbon dating was the force that changed my activities from geomorphology to paleoecology and paleolimnology, in a gradual kind of way. Organic matter is the sine que non
This brings me to two facets in the careers of many Quaternary scientists, both related to human impact on the natural systems. One is the effort to evaluate the effects of human activities in the modern industrial world. For many this takes the form of local studies concerning the history and magnitude of water pollution, soil degradation, desertification, timber cutting, river management, etc. Such studies may be confined to speculation when the investigation is limited to short-term experiments or to quantification of modern processes on disturbed landscapes or ecosystems. Knowledge of the natural conditions prior to disturbance is essential. This is the sphere of the Quaternary scientist, who can make significant contributions to public and political understanding of environmental science and its relation to human welfare.
The other facet concerning interactions of human societies with the environment is in the archaeological field. This is of greatest importance in Europe, where episodes of cultural change since the Neolithic thousands of years ago are manifested not only by archaeological findings themselves but in lake-sediment archives, which can record deforestation, land use, watershed erosion, water pollution, and various forms of agriculture by analysis of the pollen, diatom, sedimentological, geochemical, and geomagnetic components. When accompanied by insights concerninc the processes by which these components are produced and preserved in the sediments, a lot can be said about the environment and lifeways of ancient people.

Save a personal copy of this article and quickly find it again with It's free! Save it. David M. Hopkins, a Quaternary geologist widely known for his broad-ranging studies of the Bering Land Bridge region ("Beringia"), passed away at his home in Menlo Park, California, on November 2, 2001. Dave was a long-time member of Alaskan units of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). In search of a deeper understanding of Beringia, he became a pioneer in interdisciplinary research and in collaborative research with Russian investigators. Following his retirement from the USGS in 1985, Dave became director of the Alaskan Quaternary Center and Professor of Quaternary Studies at the Fairbanks campus of the University of Alaska. During the 57 years of his professional career, he was a mentor, friend, and source of inspiration to several generations of Arctic scholars. Dave was raised in Greenfield, New Hampshire. At an early age, he developed a broad interest in natural science. After graduating from the University of New Hampshire with a bachelor's degree in Geology in 1942, he joined the USGS and began graduate studies at Harvard University. Dave spent his initial field seasons with the USGS in southern regions of Alaska, where he investigated strategic minerals, engineering geology, and other aspects of geology that were considered essential to the ongoing war effort. In 1944, he was inducted into the Army and assigned to carry out meteorological observations at Cold Bay, situated at the tip of the Alaska Peninsula. Following his discharge, Dave resumed graduate studies at Harvard and field work with the USGS. He obtained an M.S. degree in Geology (1948) and a Ph.D. in Quaternary Geology (1955) from Harvard University.

It should be deleted from your counts.)
Studies of Quaternary environments, those of roughly the last two million years of Earth history, are increasingly important as we struggle to understand the scale and rapidity of climatic and environmental changes in the modern world. How can we say, for example, that human activities are having major impacts on global climates if we can't say for sure what the natural rate of variability in those climate systems is?
Colby students are introduced to techniques in Quaternary Paleoecology through a course ( ) that is required for Geology-Biology majors but open to all students meeting the prerequisites. In this course, students learn to identify some of the more important non-marine fossil groups that provide useful data to help us re-create what past environments must have been like, and from that information to approximate what past climatic parameters must have determined that biological environment.
The study of palynomorphs (pollen grains) in sediments is one way that past vegetation changes can be assessed. Above, Colby students are shown preparing to study and sample a river-bluff exposure of sediments along the Sandy River, about a half-hour drive north of the campus; these samples will provide the basis for subsequent lab work during the semester.

The Quaternary Period
The Quaternary Period includes the last 1.8 million years. One of the most significant aspects of this period is the expansion of Northern Hemisphere ice sheets collectively known as the "Ice Age". Evidence from the deep oceans indicate that there have been over two dozen cold (glacials) and warm (interglacial) periods during the last 2.4 million years. The most recent glaciation began about 125,000 years ago and climaxed about 21,000 years ago. At this time, over 30 percent of earth's surface was covered by ice, and sea level was at least 125 meters lower than present.
