The objective of INQUA-MARE is to bring together researchers studying recent (Holocene) sediment records from the Arctic, Antarctic and the Tropics, as these regions are linked by thermohaline circulation and atmospheric teleconnection. 
As these areas are the most sensitive to climate change, we feel the need to let researchers working on these records meet and discuss their results and research methods, and maximise their efforts by enlarging their scientific network. 
We want to bring together researchers from the broader fields of paleoceanography because we are convinced that only through an interdisciplinary project we can get an exhaustive and deep understanding of the phenomena we study.
