Abstract/Summary

Recent recommendations for the expression of time units in Quaternary Science Reviews appear still to leave room for confusion. Here, I propose that the entire palaeoclimate community should agree on the use of a common zero for age scales, with a clear and informative notation. I briefly review the options available in the hope that this will lead to a rapid discussion and conclusion.
