EGU2023, session SSP 3.1: bedform morphodynamics in terrestrial and planetary environments

Please consider submitting an abstract to the session on Bedform morphodynamics in terrestrial and planetary environments (SSP 3.1) at the EGU General Assembly 2023. EGU (23-28 April 2023) will be a hybrid event facilitating online and in-person participation in Vienna.

To all river, marine, aeolian, glacial, volcanic and extra-terrestrial geomorphologists and sedimentologists, we would like to draw your attention to the EGU session on “Bedform morphodynamics in terrestrial and planetary environments”. We invite contributions regarding all aspects of bedform dynamics and sedimentary structures in both terrestrial and extra-terrestrial environments. The deadline for abstract submission is 10 January 2023, 13:00 CET.

For the full description of the session, please see

Kind regards,
Francesco Salese, Sjoukje de Lange, Wessel van der Sande, Alice Lefebvre, Thaiënne van Dijk.

Conference MARID VII, 3-5 April 2023, Rennes, France

MARID VII will be held in Rennes, France, on April 3-5, 2023  and is organised by the Institute of Physics of Rennes and Geosciences Rennes Laboratory (University of Rennes 1) and the French Naval Hydrographic and Oceanographic Office (SHOM). 
Scientific sessions will take place in the Beaulieu Scientific Campus on 3 and 4 April 2023 including talks from keynote speakers and oral and poster presentations by delegates. On 5 April a field trip is planned to the Mont-Saint-Michel Bay to allow a convivial exchange between participants. 
The aim of this meeting is to encourage effective communication between physicists, geologists, biologists and modellers to improve our understanding of bedform dynamics with particular attention to societal relevance.
Three speakers are already scheduled to give keynote lectures: Nathalie Vriend (Cambridge, UK), Bruno Andreotti (Paris, France), Jim Best (University of Illinois, US).
The conference is open to all professionals and stakeholders dealing with bedform dynamics.

Visit the website is 5 years old!

Five years ago, we created with the aim to:

  • Provide a focus and a communication platform for international research on sedimentary bedform dynamics
  • To share information on tools and best practice that will aid the efficiency and consistency of research methods.
  • To support early-career scientists in their research through travel grant opportunities, promotion of their work and networking opportunities

To celebrate the big birthday, the website was entirely updated.

To keep the website up-to-date and alive, we need YOUR input! Let us know if you have a new project, toolbox or publication (

You can also sign up to the MARID newsletter (we send 3 to 4 emails per year with all the latest news).
