We encourage submission of abstracts to the Earth and Planetary Surface
Processes session EP20 From the Mountains to the Sea: Significance of
Grain-Size Distributions in Stratigraphy, Sedimentology &
Paleoclimatology - Analyses, Application, and Interpretation for the AGU
Fall Meeting to be held 10-14 December, 2018.
This session aims to provide a lively forum to review all aspects of
grain-size investigations in geomorphic, sedimentological, and
paleoenvironmental studies applied to terrestrial, marine, lacustrine,
or atmospheric environments. The session is co-sponsored by the Society
for Sedimentary Geology.
The deadline for submission of abstracts is 01 August, 2018, 2359 EDT
(Eastern Daylight Time). Abstract Submissions is open.
!!! If you have difficulties to meet this deadline or if you have any
additional questions, please feel free to contact us right away for
Geological landscapes are shaped by processes that produce, transport
and deposit mixtures of particles. Information on how sediment has been
produced and modified is encoded in grain-size distributions, which
evolve after sediment production by mixing from different sources, size
reduction by physical and chemical attack, and sorting during transport
and deposition. The detailed investigation of particle size
distributions of sediments, suspended load, or aerosols is an
increasingly used approach in assessing those environmentally driven
geophysical processes in sedimentary systems. This session aims to
provide a lively forum to review all aspects of particle size
investigations applied to terrestrial, coastal, marine, lacustrine, or
atmospheric environments, e.g. material sorting, land-atmosphere
processes, sediment dispersal studies, advances in measurement
techniques and data analysis, as well as statistical characterization
and modeling of particle size distributions.
Submissions by students and young scientists are particularly encouraged!
We look forward to seeing many of you in Washington D.C.!
