AQUA Biennial Conference

13.02 - 17.02.2012
Lake Tekapo, New Zealand

The AQUA Biennial Conference will be held in New Zealand in 2012. The venue is Lake Tekapo in the McKenzie Basin, a dry inter-montane basin on the eastern front range of the Southern Alps near Aoraki/Mt Cook.

A mid-conference field trip is planned for Wednesday 15 February and a pre-conference field trip on Sunday 12 February will leave from Christchurch to get participants to the venue. This field trip will cover Quaternary highlights in Canterbury with a particular focus on loess. The mid-conference field trip will visit the moraine systems around Lakes Pukaki and Ohau reviewing the intensive dating campaigns that have been active over the last 5-10 years.
