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


Welcome to the MARID website

To understand marine and river dune dynamics, the MARID community combines expertise from a variety of disciplines including geology, engineering, geomorphology, environmental management, hydrography and biology. The community meets every few years at a dedicated international conference to share findings derived from observations, modelling and experiments. MARIDV was held in North Wales in April 2016 and MARIDVI will be held in Bremen, Germany, in 2019.

With this website, the MARID community aims 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

If you would like to share data, best practice or research tools, or if you have news on publications, meetings or job opportunities, please email directly to
