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.

First call for abstract MARID VI

On behalf of the Scientific and Organising Committees, we are pleased to invite you to participate in the 6th edition of the
Conference series on Marine and River Dune Dynamics (MARID), taking place 1-3 April 2019 (scientific sessions 1 & 2 April, excursion 3 April).

MARID VI will take place in Bremen, Germany.

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: Prof. Dr. Dan Parsons (University of Hull), Prof. Dr. Cheng Heqin (East China Normal University) and Dr. Pieter C. Roos (University of Twente).

The conference is open to all professionals and stakeholders dealing with bedform dynamics. MARID VI will offer student travel grants and will make awards available for their high standard contributions to the meeting by young scientists.
Please forward this invitation to your colleagues and students!

Visit our website for more details: https://www.marum.de/en/Research/MARID.html

Submission of extended abstracts for oral or poster presentations is due by Tuesday 30 October 2018. Please use the template that is provided, and keep to a length of 2 to 6 pages (all inclusive). Details on how to submit are available on https://www.marum.de/en/Research/MARID/Abstract.html

If you have any questions, feel free to send an email to marid@marum.de

MARID website needs you!

The MARID website aims at:

  • 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 do so, we need YOUR input! Let us know if you have a new project, toolbox or publication (maridwebsite@gmail.com)
