EGU session with focus on bedforms

EGU session

Dear flow and bedform enthusiasts,

Don’t forget to submit an abstract to the specialized session on “Flow and bedform dynamics: current understanding of a complex interplay” at the EGU General Assembly 2020, for which we invite contributions regarding all aspects of flow, bedform dynamics and sedimentary structures, from modelling to experiments to field quantification. We’re delighted to welcome Katrien Van Landeghem (Bangor University, UK) as our invited speaker.

The Bedform session is in the PICO format, which comprises 2- or 3 minute oral presentations and a long discussion session afterwards to share your results in interactive presentations on your own screen. For abstract submission and the full description of the session, please see https://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU2020/session/36491. Abstracts can be submitted within the session link above until the 15th of January 2020, 13:00 CET.

We are very happy to announce that we intend to launch a Special Issue in Solid Earth, focusing on “Linking sedimentary structures and bedforms with flow dynamics“. We would like to invite all participants of the EGU2020 Flow and Bedform dynamics session to contribute to the special issue. Please let us know whether you are interested by mid-January 2020, by sending an e-mail to Guilhem Amin Douillet (guilhem.douillet@geo.unibe.ch).

We look forward to receiving your abstracts and welcoming you to our PICO Bedform session in Vienna!

Merry Christmas and happy holidays,

Anne Baar, Maria Azpiroz-Zabala, Guilhem Douillet, Alice Lefebvre and Thaiënne van Dijk.

MARID VI proceedings

The 6th international conference on River and Marine Dune Dynamics, MARID VI, organised by MARUM- Center for Marine Environmental Sciences, University of Bremen, the University of Kiel and the French Naval Hydrographic and Oceanographic Office (SHOM), took place in Bremen with scientific sessions on 1 and 2 April. The conference welcomed 65 participants from 12 countries.

The scientific programme included 3 keynote lectures, 30 oral presentations and 15 poster presentations, a visit of MARUM, as well as a short course on Bedforms-ATM. On Wednesday 3 April, many participants took part in the excursion organised at the North Sea coast and on the Weser.

The proceedings are now available online
