Binghamton Geomorphology Symposium 2018

Syracuse University has been selected to host the 49th annual Binghamton Geomorphology Symposium on October 5-7, 2018.

This international conference brings together leading scholars in geomorphology and a themed topic. The topic of our symposium will be Sediment complexity within geomorphological systems.  


It has become a consensus that processes controlling sediment initiation, transport, and deposition are complex both in space and over time. Understanding the complexity of these processes at different spatial and temporal scales require collecting and analyzing data with different levels of detail, which may be achieved by using a variety of field, experimental, and modeling approaches, possibly combined with advanced technology such as remote sensing and sediment tracing and dating. New ideas and concepts out of these approaches often arise from interdisciplinary collaboration among scientists in geography, geology, environmental engineering, and other relevant disciplines. The 49th annual Binghamton Geomorphology Symposium provides a forum for innovative thinking and potential collaboration.
