EP007:
Coastal Geomorphology and Morphodynamics





Session ID#: 24657

Session Description:
Coastal landscapes are amongst the most dynamic on Earth and their morphodynamics span a wide range of spatial and temporal scales.  Accordingly, research in the coastal zone is diverse and ranges from studies of coastal evolution over the Quaternary to event-based sediment transport processes. The 2017 Coastal Geomorphology and Morphodynamics session welcomes contributions based upon field observations, the application and development of models, investigations of sedimentary deposits, physical experiments, and interdisciplinary studies that link coastal geomorphology with biology, ecology, and the social sciences. The session will include studies from a wide range of coastal settings including coastal dunes, barrier systems, rocky coasts, deltas, arctic coasts, marshes, estuaries and lagoons.
Primary Convener:  Ian James Walker, Arizona State University, School of Geographical Sciences & Urban Planning, School of Earth & Space Exploration, Tempe, AZ, United States
Conveners:  Danika van Proosdij, Saint Mary's University, Geography and Environmental Studies, Halifax, NS, Canada, Christopher Esposito, The Water Institute of the Gulf, Baton Rouge, LA, United States and Jonathan A Warrick, U.S. Geological Survey, Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center, Santa Cruz, CA, United States
