MARID VII will take place in 2023 in Brittany, France

Thierry Garlan and the organising committee from the Université de Rennes, France, have announced that the next MARID will not take place in 2022 as initially planned, but in 2023. This is due to the report of many conferences to 2021 and 2022 after the cancellation of most conferences in 2020. It is also to allow researchers who were delayed due to facilities closure and care duties to carry on their work and present new exciting results at the 7th International Conference on Marine and River Dune Dynamics in 2023.

Thierry Garlan and the organising committee of MARID VII are looking forward to welcoming you in Brittany in 2023.

vEGU21 bedform session announcement

I cannot believe it is already nearly one year since my last announcement! Like everyone else, I had very little time this year, what with one thing and another, and I have not yet managed to take care of the MARID website. I will soon add all the new publications (we are nearly finished with our MARID Special Issue in Earth Surface Processes and Landforms).
Still, I am happy to announce that there will be a bedform session at the next EGU, this time again virtual.

For all river, marine, glacial, volcanic and extra-terrestrial geomorphologists and sedimentologists, we would like to draw your attention to the EGU session that we organise on “Bedform morphodynamics on Earth and in extra-terrestrial environments: current understanding of a complex interplay”. We invite contributions regarding all aspects of bedform dynamics and sedimentary structures on Earth and in extra-terrestrial environments. The deadline for the receipt of abstracts is the 13th of January 2021, 13:00 CET.

For the full description of the session, please see https://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU21/session/39691.

From 19 – 30 April 2021, EGU will be hosting vEGU21: Gather Online (#vEGU21), a fully virtual conference that aims at providing a similar experience to the annual General Assembly, normally held in Vienna. All sessions will be in the new EGU virtual PICO (vPICO) format, which offers the opportunity to address a truly worldwide and diverse audience.

We are looking forward to receiving your abstracts and welcoming you to our vPICO bedform session!

Kind regards,

Suleyman Naqshband, Anne Baar, Alice Lefebvre, Francesco Salese and Thaiënne van Dijk.

MARIDVI: Second Call for Abstracts

The 6th edition of the international Conference series on Marine and River Dune Dynamics (MARID), will take place at Haus der Wissenschaft, Bremen, on 1 and 2 April 2019, with an icebreaker on 31 March and a field excursion on 3 April. 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. For more information, visit our website: https://www.marum.de/en/Research/MARID.html

Three speakers are already scheduled to give keynote lectures: Prof Dr Cheng Heqin (East China Normal University), Assoc Prof Pieter C. Roos (University of Twente) and Prof Dr Dan Parsons (University of Hull).

A short course on Bedforms-ATM, an open-source software developed to standardise the scale-based discrimination of bedforms, will also be offered free of charge.

MARIDVI will award student travel grants to young scientists contributing to the meeting. Please forward this invitation to your colleagues and students!

Submission of abstracts for oral or poster presentations is due by Tuesday 30 October 2018. Please use the template, and keep to a length of 2 to 6 pages. We encourage the inclusion of figures. The online submission form is available via https://www.marum.de/en/Research/MARID/Abstract.html
