Binghamton Symposium on Experimental Geomorphology, Buffalo NY Sept 2015

The 46th Binghamton Geomorphology Symposium on Laboratory Experiments in Geomorphology will be held at the University at Buffalo, NY, Friday Sept 18 – Sunday September 20, 2015.

Numerous transformative ideas and concepts have emerged from experimental geomorphology which now plays a central role within geomorphic research. This symposium will bring together leading experts and emerging scientists actively engaged in laboratory-based experimental research of geomorphic systems to highlight and discuss the past and future contributions of laboratory experiments. Themes include granular flows; hillslope, fluvial, aeolian, coastal, marine, glacial, landscape, planetary, biophysical and ecogeomorphic processes; as well as data management and facility development.

The Symposium has three main features:
  • Keynote and invited talks by leading researchers covering the conference themes. Papers based on these invited talks are in press in a special issue of the journal Geomorphology.
  • tours of laboratory facilities on the University at Buffalo campus
  • an open poster session throughout the weekend with ample free time for discussion
Speakers include: Gerard Govers (UK Leuven),Chris Paola (Minnesota), Lucy E. Clarke (Gloucestershire), Joanna C. Curran (NW Hydraul. Consultants), Sarah Delavan/Joseph Atkinson (Buffalo), David J. Furbish (Vanderbilt), Alison Graettinger (Buffalo), Fabien Graveleau (Lille), Leslie Hsu (Lamont-Doherty), Neal R. Iverson (Iowa St.), Richard M. Iverson (USGS), Maarten G. Kleinhans (Utrecht), Michael P. Lamb (CalTech), Heidi Nepf (MIT), Luke Pangle (Arizona), Jeff Peakall (Leeds), Keld R. Rasmussen (Aarhus), Elowyn M. Yager (Idaho).

We invite all those engaged in any aspect of experimental geomorphology, and especially graduate students, to present their research facilities, projects and results in the poster session, and to join in lively discussions around the theme of experimental geomorphology.
