Crossing New Frontiers: Tephra Hunt in Transylvania 2018

Dear tephrochronologists and others with interests in tephras and their application

I am very pleased to attach the first circular for the INTAV meeting "Crossing New Frontiers - Tephra Hunt in Transylvania", which is to be held in Romania from 24-29 June in 2018. This international field conference and workshop is the first specialist tephra meeting since the notable Kirishima meeting in Japan in 2010, and it promises to be a stimulating and memorable event. The conference is to be held in an idyllic Transylvanian rural mountainous karstic landscape, near the city of Brasov, dotted with medieval castles (including Dracula’s castle), and with views of the Carpathian Mountains.
