About this book

These proceedings contain selected papers from the Special Symposium, organised by the Argentine Association of Geomorphology and Quaternary Studies in October 2017. This Symposium was held within the frame of the 20th Argentine Geological Congress in Tucumán, Argentina. 
The papers describe detailed research on quaternary stratigraphy and geochronology, paleontology (diatoms, mollusks, foraminifera, palynology, phytoliths, paleobotany, vertebrates), dendrochronology, climate change, paleoclimate, pampeano quaternary paleolimnology, paleomagnetism, environmental magnetism, hydrogeochemical processes, geoarchaeology, geomorphology, structural geology and neotectonics, paleosurfaces, volcanism, risks, assets, geomorphosites, and digital mapping.
This book follows the precedent book  “Advances in Geomorphology and Quaternary Studies in Argentina” on the 6th Argentine Geomorphology and Quaternary Studies Congress, which was edited by Jorge Rabassa and published by Springer in 2017. 
It precedes a similar volume on the 7th Congreso Argentino de Cuaternario y Geomorfología, “Geocuar 2018”, as organized by Argentine Association of Geomorphology and Quaternary Studies (AACG). This conference was held in Puerto Madryn, Chubut, Argentina, from 18 to 21 September 2018.

About the authors

Jorge Rabassa received his PhD in Geology from the Facultad de Ciencias Naturales y Museo, Universidad Nacional de La Plata, Argentina. He was a postdoctoral Fulbright fellow at the State University of New York at Binghamton, U.S.A. He is a researcher with CONICET (the National Research Council of Argentina) since 1986, at CADIC, Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego (the southernmost research center of the world with permanent staff). He has taught at several Argentine universities, such as La Plata, Comahue, Patagonia-San Juan Bosco and Tierra del Fuego. He has been a visiting scholar in the U.S.A. (Lehigh University, University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), Spain (universities of Barcelona and Santiago de Compostela), South Africa (universities of Witwatersrand and Natal) and Brazil (universities of Sao Paulo and Campinas). He has published more than 200 journal articles and book chapters and was the founder and head editor of the journal "Quaternary of South America & Antarctic Peninsula" (A.A.Balkema Publishers, The Netherlands) from 1982 to 1999. He has a longstanding relationship with CADIC-CONICET, both as director for two periods and presently Senior Investigator. He is a member of both the Argentine Academy of Sciences and the Catalonian Academy of Sciences (IEC). He is presently the President of the Argentine Association of Geomorphology and Quaternary Studies (2015-2018).
