Quaternary scientists study the complex environmental changes of the glacial ages, spanning approximately the last two million years of the Earth's history, and interpret them using analogies to present-day processes and environments. A major goal of these investigations is to document the pattern and timing of climatic changes in order to understand the causes of changing climate on various time scales.en
