Dear colleagues,

The INQUA International Focus Group on Tephrochronology and Volcanism (INTAV) cordially invites you to participate in the Crossing New Frontiers - Tephra Hunt in Transylvania international field conference that aims to continue the long tradition of very successful inter-INQUA congress tephra meetings, as held previously in the USA, New Zealand, France, Canada and Japan. Crossing New Frontiers will be the first full INTAV-led tephra meeting since the Kirishima conference in Japan in 2010.

Crossing New Frontiers facilitates the opportunity for presenting and discussing your latest concepts and scientific accomplishments in all aspects of tephra or cryptotephra research and its applications. The conference is guided thematically by INTAV’s current EXTRAS project: EXTending tephRAS as a global geoscientific research tool stratigraphically, spatially, analytically, and temporally. The main aim of EXTRAS is to help improve and develop new methodologies of tephrochronology to support and facilitate many Quaternary research initiatives ranging from paleoenvironmental reconstruction to archaeology, as well as geochronological and volcanological applications. In addition to a wide-ranging scientific programme, the conference’s field components will add exceptional insight into the history of recent Carpathian volcanism and geotectonics, as well as synchronization of regional records - including land-sea connections, landscape evolution and Quaternary palaeoenvironments.

For those who might be interested in exploring Romania before or after the conference we recommend having a look here:
