From the 13th–17th September 2010 the 35th biannual conference of the German Quaternary Association DEUQUA took place in Greifswald attended by more than 180 participants representing 16 countries.

The presented volume of the E & G - Quaternary Science Journal contains seven papers which were presented at the conference. They include a wide range of new results dealing with the stratigraphy of the River Lech terraces (Gesslein & Schellmann, Schielein et al.), esker genesis (Grube), push moraines (Ludwig), Late glacial and Holocene landscape development of Rügen Island (Kossler & Strahl et al.), geomorphological responses to land use changes (Küster et al.), and mid-Weichselian interstadial deposits in N Finland (Sarala & Eskola).
