About the region
This corner of the world provides a case study for the complexities of climate, biological, geological and human processes during the Quaternary in "boundary" regions, where synergies, feedbacks and interconnectivity are essential parts of global dynamics.
The strategic geographic location of the Iberian Peninsula, where continents meet and oceans and seas converge, provides exceptional opportunities to investigate the dynamics of climate, environmental and human evolution in frontier regions during the Quaternary.
The Iberian Peninsula has long been a cultural bridge between Europe and Africa, playing an important role in human evolution and migrations. It also constitutes an essential link between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, acting as a main player in all land-ocean interactions at these mid latitudes.
This region offers numerous examples of past and present global challenges faced by societies and how paleoscience may guide us to a better common future.
