– written by the GM ECS team: Andrea, Aayush, Annegret, Edwin, and Eric – – edited by Jan and Sabine – Here we are, at the beginning of #vEGU21, finalising our contributions, getting familiar with new platforms and interfaces, and preparing to make the most of this virtual conference, once again. This post is a joint communication by the GM Early Career Scientists represent ...[Read More]

New remote geomorphology seminar series “Landscapes Live” beginning 28 May 2020

New remote geomorphology seminar series “Landscapes Live” beginning 28 May 2020

The current pandemic has highlighted the difficulties of keeping up-to-date with new developments in our field when travel is not possible. However, as we work to transition to a greener future and make our community better serve the needs of all scientists regardless of international mobility, it is important to find ways to share current research remotely. Landscapes Live is a new remote seminar ...[Read More]

GSA Penrose Conference: CLAST2019, 4-10 August 2019, Juneau, Alaska

GSA Penrose Conference: CLAST2019, 4-10 August 2019, Juneau, Alaska

We are happy to announce the GSA Penrose Conference on Climatic controls on continental erosion and sediment transport (CLAST2019), 4-10 August 2019, Juneau, Alaska (USA). Key challenges remain in recognizing and reconciling how climatic and earth surface process mediate erosion independently of solid earth forcing. The relationship amongst climatic, erosional, and transport processes are exceedin ...[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]
