Congratulations to the Costal Hazards Research Lab (Stephen Barlett, Louise Riou and Anthony Giang) recipients of the 2022-2023 Quaternary Research Center award (QRC).

The Quaternary Research Center (QRC) was founded in 1969 by Lincoln Washburn and is the oldest interdisciplinary center at UW and one of oldest Quaternary centers in the country. Since its inception, the QRC has been a hub of interdisciplinary research, drawing together UW faculty, students, associates, and visiting researchers in the study of everything from tectonics to climate, hydrosphere to ecosystems, and human evolution/adaptations to environmental impacts over the past 2.6 million years.

March 31st, 2022 is going to be our Earth Sciences Research day and we are pleased to reveal the 2022 SFU Earth Sciences Research Day schedule. This is a great opportunity for you to present your research findings, practice your presentation skills, share your research with peers, and even have the chance to win awards.
