Inqua- India 2027

Welcome to the Land of Infinite Diversity

      It is with great pride and delight that we welcome INQUA-2027 to INDIA, a land of vibrant colours, and traditions integrating art, education, science, technology, and environment into its ultimate wholesomeness. India is a land of diversity, with a rich cultural heritage that is celebrated through numerous festivals and a variety of delicious cuisines. Home to some of the world's oldest cities, each with unique history, culture, and architecture. The Congress would be hosted in the historic city of Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh. Lucknow is a city of imperialistic splendor, with a wealth of architectural marvels, literature, and music of the Nawabi era and contemporary times. The city is renowned for its art and craftsmanship, including exquisite embroidery, muslins, gold and silver jewellery, and more. Its rich history of education and languages has made it a center of learning and innovation for generations.

           The Indian sub-continent is rich in geological features that have fascinated scientists for decades. The country as a whole offers an opportunity for research on the full spectrum of Quaternary sciences. Geological terrain of the sub-continent is sculpted so as to understand the Earth-linked Human evolution, all within a single geopolitical entity. The presence of a large mountain chain, numerous glaciers, a multitude of river basins -large and small, a long coastline, lakes, lagoons, mangroves, and deltas of all dimensions, deserts (both hot and cold), a unique climate regime of seasonally reversing winds, and turbulent Sea’s, presence of natural hazards (like landslides, earthquakes, floods, soil loss) coupled to an exceptional Human impact on Geology and Resources makes India an ideal laboratory for the understanding the processes, amplitudes and time scales of Human - Geology interactions. One of the most fascinating aspects is the Indian Summer Monsoon and its interaction with the Himalayan glaciers and river systems. These rivers and glaciers are a crucial source of water for millions of people in the region, and changes in the monsoon patterns or the melting of the glaciers have significant impacts on the availability of water for agriculture and other uses.  

          Indian science has made substantive progress in Quaternary science during the recent past via significant contributions to the understanding of the Earth's processes with its unique geosciences setting and inherent challenges.  The Subcontinent is home to a large group of geoscientists who are keen to share their experiences with the global community and learn from them. 

          Through this conference, we offer a glimpse of the Quaternary sites of our country with the fond hope that it would entice the International fraternity to come to India and explore its Quaternary history, wonders and processes. The proposed congress is scheduled from February 20 -28, 2027 with the focal theme of “Quaternary Science as Societal Services”. We would like to invite delegates from across the globe to come to India and experience its historical and cultural marvels and in the process partner our science for a global cause. We promise an unforgettable event, with opportunities to learn, engage, and network with fellow professionals from around the world. We would consider it to be our privilege if India is considered to host INQUA 2027 and in the process be are able to get you to experience our warm hospitality.
