Conferences arranged by or together with the Department of geological sciences.


Processes and Palaeo–Environmental Changes in the Arctic: From Past to Present is an international network research programme. The scientific goal of this six-year programme is to understand and explain the climatically-induced environmental changes in the Arctic that have taken place throughout the Quaternary and continue in the present-day.

The 5th International PalaeoArc Conference was organized at Stockholm University (IGV reseachers), The Swedish Museum of Natural History and the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences over 3 days (Monday May 27–Wednesday May 29).
