EGU Geomorphology session (April 23-28 2023, Vienna)

Dear colleagues,

Please consider submitting an abstract to ‘From simple models to complex geomorphological systems: laboratory experiments and associated concept models’ in the Geomorphology section at EGU 2023 (23-28 April, Vienna and online) by January 10th. Below is the session description and a poster. We strongly encourage submissions from early career and underrepresented scientists.

The Earth’s surface is shaped by many processes occurring over a wide range of time and length scales, all of which are interdependent with each other. Unravelling this complex system is challenging, especially because of the wide range of scales involved, which makes observation difficult. Therefore, the use of simplified and controlled experiments is widely used to probe isolated processes or their interactions. Careful selection of experimental parameters allows the relevant space-time scales to be tuned to facilitate observation. Similarly, it allows to control the specific mechanisms to be included. After understanding the predominant mechanisms, it is possible to gradually increase the complexity of the experimental system to reduce the gap between the model and the natural system.

This session aims to bring together researchers from different communities working experimentally on various systems to facilitate knowledge exchange on experimental methods, measurement and data processing, and the fundamental processes ubiquitous in geomorphological systems.

We especially welcome contributions about systems involving fluid mechanics and/or granular flows, such as but not limited to:
– fluvial and coastal systems

– aeolian processes and arid environments
– systems associated with melting, dissolution and precipitation
– gravity-driven flows
