International Paleolimnology Association
The IPA exists to advance the science of paleolimnology and its applications, and promote the interests of paleolimnology globally. The association holds an international conference every three years (joint meeting with IAL), which brings together paleolimnologists and other scientists and users of paleolimnological information. The IPA facilitates an effective means of communication among paleolimnologists, other scientists, and users of paleolimnological information, and provides general support and coordination to the international paleolimnological community. The goals of the association are linked with the goals of the main publication vehicle for paleolimnologists, the Journal of Paleolimnology (currently published by Springer).
