Coastal & Marine Processes (CMP)

The aim of the INQUA Commission for Coastal and Marine Processes (CMP) is to promote communication and international collaboration in basic and applied aspects of Coastal and Marine Quaternary research. We currently sponsor two large 'multi-year projects': PALSEA (Paleo-constraints on sea-level rise) and SPLOSH (Submerged palaeolandscapes of the Southern Hemisphere) as well as three smaller 'multi-year projects': NEPTUNE (New procedures and technologies for underwater palaeo-landscape reconstruction), INQUA_MARE (Integrated Quaternary marine records at sensitive latitudes), and HOLSEA (Geographic variability of Holocene relative sea levels). 

We invite enquiries about potential projects, working groups and INQUA related activities throughout the year: email cmp@inqua.org or the Coastal and Marine Processes secretary directly (r.barnett@exeter.ac.uk).
