9th I.A.G./A.I.G. SEDIBUD Workshop –  Sediment Dynamics in Cold Climate Environments, Kaunertal, Tyrol/Austria, 7-10.09.2015

Changes in climate have a major impact on sediment dynamics in cold environments from high arctic/antarctic and subarctic/subantarctic to alpine and upland sites. Climate changes influence the nature and extent of glaciers, permafrost areas, ice sheets and the extent and intensity of glacial, peri-, pro- and paraglacial processes. In this context major foci of the workshop are related to: Observat ...[Read More]
