X-Projects: Audio Recording Request

IQUA Audio Recording Request

Climate change, sea-level rise, ice-ages, human evolution, the migration of peoples, cultures, plants and animals, and the formation of the landscape and habitats of today are all incorporated in the term ‘The Quaternary.’

The Quaternary is a geological period which began 2.6 million years ago, is the one in which we currently live, and is characterised by ice-ages interspersed with warmer periods.

The Irish Quaternary Association (IQUA) would like to record sound bytes of the presentation made by experts on our annual field visit. This year the organised trip will take us to the Midlands from Offaly to Longford on the weekend of the 14th to 16th of September. 9-10 speakers will present the latest research and Quaternary context at various sites. Further information can be found at our website:

IQUA would like someone to record, edit and format a collection of audio presentations of up to 5min each that could be placed on its website ( and used for promotional purposes. It would serve as way for the general public to self guide itself along the various sites visited and for IQUA promotional purposes. We would welcome input on the best ways of achieving this.

The IQUA field trip will take place from Friday evening the 14th to Sunday afternoon the 16th of September in the Midlands. We would want the finalised audio clips by mid November 2018

What’s in it for you:
We can provide €200 for the completed work. Additionally accommodation, meals and travel along the various sites will be covered. We would be happy also to write references about your work. IQUA is also hosting a large conference (3000 delegates) in 2019: if this trial is successful, other promotional activities may occur.

If interested, or for any further information, please contact Bettina at
