In January 2020 Leeds Quaternary, a group led by Natasha Barlow, ran the Quaternary Research Association (QRA) Annual Discussion Meeting at the University of Leeds. Over 2.5 days the meeting covered science from ice sheets, oceans and sea level, to palaeoecology, and Quaternary Science for the Earth Future. On the first day Victor presented results from RISeR which focused on the extent of the Saalian (MIS 6) ice limit offshore of the Netherlands.

During the meeting, Natasha was presented with the 2019 QRA Lewis Penny Medal. This is awarded to a young research worker who has made a significant contribution to the Quaternary stratigraphy of the British Isles and its maritime environment. The QRA has been important part of Natasha’s life since she attended her first ADM in 2007 as a PhD student, so it was an absolute honour to be presented with this award, and whilst hosting the meeting at Leeds.
