24-h Eric Grimm Memorial Event 

Join us ONLINE for celebrating Eric's life and legacy (April 28, 2021)

On Sunday, November 15th, 2020, Dr. Eric C. Grimm, passed away suddenly at the age of 69. He was internationally known and respected for his studies of fossil pollen (palynology) and research documenting long-term changes in vegetation and climate. On the 28th of April 2021, we come together as a global community of friends and colleagues to celebrate Eric's legacy in our personal and professional lives. From across the globe, we will connect during this open 24-hr event to share perspectives and personal stories on Eric's life, work and dedication to science. In chronological order of time-zones, there will be four blocks of talks covering Asia & Pacific, Europe, Africa and the Americas, including short breaks to raise a glass together for Eric.

For more information, please visit the website and join us on the 28th by Zoom.


Denise Gaudreau Award

This biennial award of $500 was established to support the early career development of women scientists in Quaternary studies. Female scientists in any field of Quaternary studies within two years prior to completing the Ph.D. (i.e., they have not yet finished their dissertation research) are encouraged to apply. Membership in AMQUA and citizenship in the United States are not required. Selection will be based on scientific accomplishments, promise, and demonstration of original thinking. Emphasis will be placed on the quality and carefulness of the work, rather than solely on quantity.
Applications should include:

  1. Curriculum vitae (no page limit)
  2. Summary of research interests, accomplishments, and goals (not to exceed two pages)
  3. Copy of graduate transcripts (signed by the Advisor). Photocopies of transcripts will suffice. For credits shown in transcripts under general titles, such as independent studies or seminars, briefly describe the subject(s) of the seminar or independent study on a separate page.
  4. Name, address, e-mail address, and phone number of two referees to contact after initial committee screening.

    Applications for the 2020 Award must be submitted by March 30, 2020. The award will be presented at the 2020 AMQUA Biennial Meeting and announced on the AMQUA Web site and listserve.
