Climate change and accelerated sea-level rise will fundamentally alter the geomorphology of our coastlines. Management and protection of coastal communities requires understanding of how coastal geomorphology has operated in the past, is operating now, and will operate in the future. We solicit abstracts aimed at understanding how coastal geomorphic processes impact ecosystems and human environments broadly. This includes erosional, aeolian, and hydrological processes, as well as biogeographical and paleoenvironmental shifts related to changing geomorphology. We welcome techniques such as lab and field based studies, remote sensing & GIS, modeling applications, and others.
