7th Young Geomorphologists’ Day in Naples/ Italy

The Italian Young Geomorphologists represented by Irene Bollati (front row, green jacket) and Francesca Vergari invite you to join their event in June 2017. Group shot taken during the fieldtrip in Sardinia at the 6th Young Geomorphologists’ Day in 2015.

 

 

We are glad to invite You to the “7th Young Geomorphologists’ Day” that will be held in Naples (Italy) on 15th-16th June 2017

The main topic is “Innovative technologies for monitoring and digitally modeling past and present geomorphological processes”.

During the first day there will be the Oral and Poster Session.

During the second day a fieldtrip including a short course on monitoring systems for submerged and emerged sandy beach monitoring is organized.

All the information (timetable, registration form etc.) are available here!!!

Waiting for your participation, we remain at disposal for all the information you need (italianyounggeomorphologists@gmail.com)

EGU mentoring programme 2017

 – by Susanne Buiter TS Division President –

EGU is launching a mentoring programme at its 2017 General Assembly for
novice conference attendees, students, and early career scientists. The
programme aims to facilitate new connections that may lead to long-term
professional relationships within the Earth, planetary and space science
communities. We anticipate the programme to be a rewarding experience for both mentees and mentors, so do consider signing up: We need both mentees and mentors.

Short video on Geomorphology – Sediment Dynamics in high-mountain Environments

Short video on Geomorphology – Sediment Dynamics in high-mountain Environments

Geomorphology is the science of processes shaping the earth surface. Especially in high-mountain environments, where the relief is steep, these processes move a great amount of material. This 10 minute video features Geomorphologists from different parts of the world, explaining what happens when glaciers retreat and expose sediments to erosion and how it affects us humans.
Furthermore it attempts to communicate a discipline’s focus to the public.

The video was produced during a summer school in the Kaunertal Valley in 2015, organized by Jan Henrik Blöthe (University of Bonn), Sabine Kraushaar (University of Vienna), David Morche (University of Halle) & Ronald Pöppl (University of Vienna).

Featuring (in order of appearance):

  • Prof. Lorenzo Borselli (Universidad Autonoma San Luís de Potosí, Mexico)
  • Dr. Andreas Zischg (University of Bern, Switzerland)
  • Prof. Ellen Wohl (Colorado State University, USA)
  • Dr. Kristen Cook (German Research Centre for Geoscience in Potzdam, Germany)
  • Dr. Joachim Götz (University of Salzburg, Austria)
  • Prof. Michael Krautblatter (Technical University of Munich, Germany)
  • Prof. Stuart Lane (University of Lausanne, Switzerland)
  • Prof. Oliver Sass (University of Graz, Austria)
  • Prof. Matthias Hinderer (Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany)
