Many of the top Quaternary science specialists globally are members of the International Union for Quaternary Research (INQUA), and a number of New Zealand Quaternary scientists are in that category. Membership of INQUA provides access to this international knowledge base and the latest developments in the discipline, as described in my report for 2017 (Lowe, 2018a). The appendix of that report (Lowe, 2018b) provided examples of the international recognition of New Zealand Quaternary researchers and geological archives as globally important or unique, and of New Zealand participation and leadership in globally-significant research and in decision making at the international level through INQUA and through associated activities/outlets involving Quaternary research and its dissemination.
