Climatica is a project supported by and in collaboration with The Geological Society and the Quaternary Research Association. These two organisations are comprised of academics with research interests in Earth science and climate change. Both are committed to encouraging and engaging with the wider public on these key subject areas. We are also part of the Connect4Climate network, a community of partners which aims to promote a global dialogue on climate change.
The Geological Society
The Geological Society of London was founded in 1807. It is the UK national society for geoscience, and the oldest geological society in the world.
The Society provides a wide range of professional and scientific support to over 10,000 Fellows (members), about 2000 of whom live overseas. More than 2000 Fellows are also Chartered Geologists.
As well as boasting one of the most important geological libraries in the world, the Geological Society is a global leader in Earth science publishing, and is renowned for its cutting edge science meetings.
Quaternary Research Association
The Quaternary Research Association is an organisation comprising archaeologists, botanists, civil engineers, geographers, geologists, soil scientists, zoologists and others interested in research into the problems of the Quaternary (the last 2.6 million years).
Founded in 1964, the QRA now has international membership. It holds numerous discussion meetings, and publishes and awards scientific research.
Connect4Climate is a campaign, a coalition, and a community, driven by the World Bank. It aims to create a participatory knowledge platform that engages the global community in climate change conversation to drive local action through advocacy, operational support, research, and capacity building.
