The QEN home page is maintained by Jonathan Adams, whose work is funded=20
by the Lockheed-Martin Corporation in the form of a Eugene P. Wigner=20
Fellowship. The homepage is also related to the work of INQUA Paleocarbon=
Commission (President; Hugues Faure, Vice-President; Andreij Velichko,=20
Secretary; Jonathan Adams). The aim of the QEN page is to provide map=20
information for biogeochemists, archaeologists, biogeographers and others=
with an interest in broadscale ecosystem changes on the timescale of the=20
last 20,000 years. Other resources provided in relation  to the Terrestrial
Carbon Commission include a Quaternary ecosystem carbon storage database=20
and the Newsletter of the INQUA Terrestrial Carbon Commission.
