EP032:
Putting Ecogeomorphology Into Practice





Session ID#: 23475

Session Description:
The Anthropocene Epoch promises fundamental changes to the ecological and morphodynamic function of landscapes across the globe. The societies that depend on the most vulnerable landscapes are thus faced with an urgent need for innovative strategies to integrate ecological and morphological management techniques across a range of spatial and temporal scales. This session will welcome submissions from the nascent discipline of Ecogeomorphology that investigate links and feedbacks between ecosystem dynamics and morphological processes, including but not limited to sedimentological interactions with flora and fauna, nutrient dynamics, the microbiome, and ecohydrology. A particular focus will be placed on scientific findings that can be packaged for use by landscape management practitioners. We encourage submissions that integrate field observations with laboratory or numerical modeling results, and with historical data.
