Five years ago, we created marid.net 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 (email@example.com).
You can also sign up to the MARID newsletter (we send 3 to 4 emails per year with all the latest news).
Check the publication page to see all the new publications in 2021 so far. Let us know if we have missed any.
I am very happy to let you know that the Special Issue published in Earth Surface Processes and Landforms following the MARID VI conference in Bremen in 2019 is now published!
You can read the introduction to the special issue
Lefebvre, A, Winter, C, 2021. Special issue: Marine and river bedforms dynamics, MARID VI. Earth Surface Processes and Landforms 1. https://doi.org/10.1002/esp.5091

I finally managed to take the time to look for bedforms-related publications. I just added 41 references to the publication list of 2020.
Wishing you all good holidays, I hope you manage to see your loved ones safely, and get to relax after such a demanding year.
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
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.

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
We have added new publications
We wish you a very happy festive season!
No need to rush to finish your abstract, you still have time to join us for the next MARID conference, the deadline is extended for everyone until 16 November.
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
