Call for Submissions

If your work is related to river science, please consider submitting an abstract to the session River Dynamics: Forms, Processes, and Observations at the (virtual) AAG Annual Meeting 2021. Our goal is to bring together a wide range of studies on river dynamics including geomorphology, hydrology, hydraulics, ecology as well as interdisciplinary studies connecting these dynamics to society across all spatial and temporal scales.

Please contact session organizers Quinn Lewis (quinn.lewis@uwaterloo.ca) or Tanya Shukla (tshukla2@illinois.edu) with the abstract and author PIN to participate in the session.


Description

River systems are highly dynamic and driven by the interactions among geomorphic, hydraulic, hydrologic, ecological, and anthropogenic processes. Rivers move sediment and flow constituents from uplands to oceans, dynamically shaping the landscape along the way. Improved understanding of river dynamics is also vital for dealing with socio-economic problems such as floods, water supply, sedimentation, and climate change, and to develop effective river management and restoration strategies. This session invites studies of all aspects of river dynamics (geomorphology, hydrology, hydraulics, ecology) and the interaction of these dynamics with society, across all spatial and temporal scales using a range of field, modeling, and remote sensing approaches in a variety of geographic settings.
