EP21D:
Coastal Geomorphology and Morphodynamics I


Session ID#: 7497

Session Description:
The geomorphic and sedimentary responses of coastal systems to atmospheric, terrestrial, and oceanographic forcing can be observed, monitored and modeled across a range of spatial (meters to 1000's of kilometers) and temporal (event to geologic) scales. The 2015 Coastal Geomorphology and Morphodynamics session welcomes contributions based upon field measurements, application and development of models, investigation of sedimentary deposits, the integration of observation and modeling techniques, the integration across multiple time and space scales, and those that couple geomorphology with biology, ecology, and social sciences. The session will encompass research from different coastal settings worldwide including barrier systems, rocky/cliffed coasts, deltaic systems, marshes and lagoons, estuaries, and open ocean coasts, and from Quaternary to contemporary environments.
