Beta Analytic was one of the sponsors of the 2012 Associazione Italiana per lo Studio del Quaternario (AIQUA) Congress held in Pisa, Italy, from February 15 to February 17. The event aimed to promote discussion on the best documented environmental changes and archaeological data that helps in understanding what particular climatic events may represent potential analogues for future climate predictions relevant to the Italian peninsula and surrounding regions.
Through advertising at the AIQUA congress, Beta Analytic provided updates to Italy’s Quaternary researchers regarding the lab’s fast, high-quality services and its commitment to keep all results confidential. ISO/IEC 17025:2005-accredited Beta Analytic is a dedicated radiocarbon dating laboratory with a standard turnaround time of 14 business days or less for its AMS dating service. The lab is able to process and analyze hundreds of samples per week due to its multiple machines and full-time staff. All results are kept confidential. Beta Analytic does not have any co-publication requirement.
The theme of the AIQUA congress was “The transition from natural to anthropogenic-dominated environmental change in Italy and the surrounding regions since the Neolithic.” The congress was divided into these sessions:
– Holocene environmental changes recorded at high mountain sites
– Sea level and coastal evolution
– Environment, climate and human impact: the archaeological evidence
– Marine proxy records
– Continental proxy records
– Volcanic impact on ancient societies, tephrostratigraphy and correlation and synchronization of archives
– Documentary proxies and early instrumental observations
The 2012 congress was organized by Dipartimento di Scienze della Terra Università di Pisa, Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia sez.
