Interview with the Steepest Descent Organizers

Interview with the Steepest Descent Organizers

The Steepest Descent is a yearly one-day meeting taking place in Vienna, Austria, close to the EGU general assembly. Participants have the opportunity to see a few keynote talks by outstanding geomorphologists and to discuss their posters in a more informal and geomorphology-focused community than at the EGU. Despite its youth, the Steepest Descent Meeting seems to have lost its aura of a niche-ev ...[Read More]

OCTOPUS: An Open Cosmogenic Isotope and Luminescence Database

OCTOPUS: An Open Cosmogenic Isotope and Luminescence Database

– written by Henry Munack, University of Wollongong – In geomorphology, radiometric dating methods have been on the rise during the past decades. Notably cosmogenic nuclide applications and luminescence dating gained great popularity because they quantitatively capture geomorphic processes on their process-inherent timescales. To date, globally more than 4,200 in situ detrital catchmen ...[Read More]
