Special issue of Quaternary International, provisionally titled 'The Baikal-Hokkaido Archaeology Project: Environmental Archives, Proxies and Reconstruction Approaches' has been initiated

June 6, 2012

Based on the idea first announced at the BHAP Start-up Meeting held in Sapporo, Japan in July 2011, a special issue of Quaternary International, provisionally titled 'The Baikal-Hokkaido Archaeology Project: Environmental Archives, Proxies and Reconstruction Approaches' was initiated.

Guest Editors are Pavel Tarasov, Dustin White and Andrzej Weber. Our basic idea is to summarize in one volume state-of-the-art research results and methods, which help to reconstruct past climate and environments in the vast areas of Inner Asia and North-Western Pacific and could serve for a better understanding of the archaeological records and human dynamics in the focus regions. Other important aims of this volume are to indicate gaps in the current knowledge, which should be filled by the environmental part of the project, and to bring up some ideas on how these gaps can be filled.

Invited papers cover a wide range of interdisciplinary topics including pollen, diatom, oxygen isotope and geophysical analyses of lake sediments, quantitative vegetation and climate reconstructions and simulations of interglacial climate and vegetation cover in NE Asia, and others introduce the aims and scopes of the Baikal-Hokkaido Archaeology Project (BHAP) and recent work in Holocene hunter-gatherer prehistory as a common denominator of the entire material.

Upon the agreement with the Editor-in-Chief the final deadline for all completed manuscripts was set 1st May 2012. Some papers which complete the Quaternary International review process are available on-line in 'early view'. We hope this information will be interesting for the BHAP community
