The scientific backgrounds of the students were as diverse as their nationalities, but all of us had at least one thing in common; an eager interest in how the Earth’s system and climate has evolved through the past. It was great to engage with a wider scientific community of young researchers all interested in the same area. USSP illustrated the breadth of palaeoclimatology as not only the students but also the faculty, an amazing group of scientists researching at the forefront of our field, was as varied as it possibly could be.
