Hosting the XVIII INQUA Congress in Bern, Switzerland,is a great event and an honour for the aternary sientif-i ommunity in Europe. Sine the foundation of DEUQUA(German aternary Assoiation) in 1948, lose links haveexisted with our neighbouring ountries, with members es-peially, but not only, from Austria and Switzerland. As theentral European high mountain range, the Alps are a re-searc objet in all three ountries and are thus of sharedinterest. For several deades, DEUQUA has also had boardmembers from both ountries who have repeatedly organ-ised DEUQUA meetings in their respetive ountries. Swit-zerland hosted DEUQUA in Zuric in 1982 and in Bern in2000; Austria was the host in Vienna in 1978 and 2008, andin Gmunden in 1996. Terefore we are pleased to presenta volume of E&G aternary Siene Journal for the par-tiipants of the INQUA Congress, with papers highlightingsome aspets of aternary researc in Germany, Austria,and Switzerland.Germany is the only ountry aeted by both the San-dinavian and the Alpine glaiations. Te long tradition inresearc on the aternary glaiations started in the seondhalf of the 18th entury. Prominent Swiss researcers pro-moted the idea of an Alpine glaiation in the 18th and 19thentury and already developed the idea of polyglaialism. Itproved muc more diult to onvey the idea of a glaia-tion – and therefore the glaial transport of boulders fromSandinavia to northern Germany – and to acieve the gen-eral aeptane of this hypothesis, as a possible glaiationwas not as evident as in the Alps, where the glaiers wereadvaning during the Lile Ie Age.It was Albrect Pen – rst working in Saxony, thenontinuing his outstanding work in the Alps and the north-ern Alpine foreland aer he beame a professor in Vienna –who gave impulses in stratigraphy that are still onsideredtoday. Pen is one of the “fathers“ of polyglaialism in theareas aeted by the Sandinavian inland ie, though he didnot reate the terms Elster, Saale and Weicsel. But for theAlpine foreland, he introdued the terms Günz, Mindel, Rissand Würm for the glaiations. Although muc researc hasrened this onept, the names are still used in the ontextof German, Austrian and Swiss alpine stratigraphy.For the warm phases, palynology brought insights intothe canging vegetation and therefore into palaeoenviron-mental onditions during interglaials and interstadials.In northern Germany, morphostratigraphy, lithostratigra-phy and sedimentology were important methods for study-ing the formerly glaiated areas and revealed with time amore and more detailed view of aternary developmentand the related glaial proesses. Tose methods are stillused to reonstrut and caraterize proesses forming theold moraini area (f. W et al., this volume). Ge-ocronologial studies dating minerogeni deposits also of Middle Pleistoene age will probably help in future to spei-fy these proesses over time. In general, physial and cemi-al dating methods have already revised the idea of the timeframe of the aternary, and are still rening in detail ourknowledge about age estimates of proesses and events. Ex-amples of dating results for the last glaial yle and evalu-ations of the methods employed are given by R et al.and L  Bö (this volume). Te ongoing develop-ment and renement of these methods will surely providemore and more high-resolution tools for interpreting thepast, inluding the proesses involved.Periglaial onditions widely aeted the non-glaiatedareas during the glaial yles and transformed their topog-raphy to a ertain extent. Periglaial relits suc as landformsand sediments are still part of our present-day landsape.Apart from the small glaiated mountain peaks of the Harz,the Bavarian Forest and the Bla Forest, the non-glaiatedareas experiened repeated transformation and sedimenta-tion aused by various periglaial proesses. Espeially thewidespread loess deposits and the palaeosoils within thembeame a valuable arcive for limati reonstrutions (f. et al., this volume).Te river systems and their terraes are mainly linkedto repeated limati canges during the glaial yles. Teterraes are impressive landforms in the present-day land-sape; they an oen be assoiated with the canging u-vial onditions and are also linked with loess arcives.Polyglaiation was the basis of all subsequent ideas andstudies about palaeolimati canges. Suc studies areabundant and of extremely great interest for the reent dis-ussion of global cange as reonstruting the past helpsus to develop and understand the models of the future. Forthese studies, the analysis of terrestrial arcives is essentialas they oer an insight into the loal variety of limate em-bedded in the global limate utuations.Te rst part of the volume is dediated to the northernglaiations and a loess area in Austria.Researc results from the arcives in the Alpine fore-land are presented in the seond half of the volume by theAGAQ (Arbeitsgruppe Alpenvorland-artär – Workinggroup on the aternary of the Alpine Foreland). It hasbeen in existene for about 20 years as an informal work-ing group mainly of DEUQUA members working on strati-graphial orrelations.M BöPresident of DEUQUA
