In particular Quaternary geology study the process and deposits that developed during the Quaternary, a period characterized by glacial-interglacial cycles. Quaternary geology has developed over time from being originally a branch of historical geology to becoming a science on its own.

      Quaternary, in the geologic history of Earth, a unit of time within the Cenozoic Era, beginning 2,, years ago and continuing to the present Quaternary has been characterized by several periods of glaciation (the “ice ages” of common lore), when ice sheets many kilometres thick have covered vast areas of the continents in temperate areas.

The Earth's youngest period, the Quaternary, includes the last 2–3 million years and is characterized by several glaciations and warmer interglacial intervals. The cause of the climatic changes is probably to be found in the Earth's orbital parameters, which result in lower summer insolation in the northern hemisphere, which in turn leads to glaciations.
