Geomorphology Division blog

Geomorphology is the scientific study of land-surface features and the dynamic processes that shape them. Besides focusing on the diverse physical landscapes of the Earth, geomorphologists also study surfaces of other planets. Understanding landform history and dynamics, and predicting future changes through a combination of field observations, physical experiments, geochemical analysis and numerical modelling is at the heart of geomorphology. In this blog we will be bring you the latest news, events and activities that would be of interest to a geomorphologist and keep you updated on fascinating research being undertaken in geomorphology.

The aim of the blog is to:

  • Provide a forum for dissemination of information and geomorphology activities such as:
  • Events, workshops, conferences, meetings
  • Outstanding work of young geomorphologists
  • Sharing common advices and solutions for tricky field/monitoring/data challenges
  • New technological developments
  • Interesting findings
  • Latest geomorphic processes happening all around the planet (or universe?)
  • Funny incidents connected to geomorphology
  • Promote communication and scientific interchange among geomorphologists.

Everyone can contribute to the blog by sending a message to any of the editors.

Best wishes,

Emma Lodes and Emily Bamber

The Geomorphology Division

The Geomorphology (GM) Division of the European Geosciences Union (EGU) coordinates the scientific programme on geomorphology and related activities, promoting scientific interchange and dissemination of activity carried out by members.

The European Geosciences Union (EGU) is the leading organisation for Earth, planetary and space science research in Europe. With partner organisations worldwide, EGU fosters fundamental geoscience research, alongside applied research that addresses key societal and environmental challenges. EGU’s vision is to realise a sustainable and just future for humanity and for the planet.
