I am forwarding this message on behalf of Dave Liverman and CANQUA.
Bonnie Blackwell,
CANQUA President


A new listserver has been created for all interested in
research in the Quaternary sciences, particularly, but not
exclusively in Canada. This listserver was established through
the initiative of the Canadian Quaternary Association, especially
Dana Naldret and Dave Liverman, with
the assistance from the Memorial University of Newfoundland, and the
Newfoundland Department of Mines and Energy. We hope that this
will be of interest to anyone with an interest in the
Quaternary geological period, including geologists, geomorphologists,
soil scientists, palaeoenvironmentalists, archaeologists, paleontologists,
geochronologists, palynologists, geotechnical engineers, and others.

A listserver consists of an automated mailing list. Any message
sent to the list is automatically passed on to all susbscribers
on the list. Typical messages include announcements about
conferences, field trips, job vacancies, new papers, new books, requests for
assistance in locating references, people and resources, discussion of
research ideas, general theory, etc., exchange of news, and
anything that the list members think appropriate. This is
a useful medium for groups whose members are geographically
widespread. For it to be effective we need to build up our numbers to
100 or so, so please forward this message to anybody who you think may
be interested.

In particular, many items interesting to CANQUA members will
appear on the list, including the newsletter, meeting announcements,
and other CANQUA business. This does not mean, however, that it is only
for CANQUA members! We welcome anyone who wants to subscribe.
