In recent years, research into landscape evolution and the coupling between surface and crustal processes has seen major advances using thermochronological methods and mineral dating, cosmogenic radionuclide methods, and numerical modeling. In many cases, the research has focused on bedrock sequences undergoing exhumation and denudation. At the same time, advances have been made in the interpretation of sedimentary deposits through detrital mineral approaches, including mineral dating, sedimentary geochemistry, fission track analysis and multi-temperature cooling rate age determinations, in order to quantify accumulation rates, determine provenance of minerals, and use erosion rate proxies to back out denudation rates. This session aims to bring together these communities in order to link investigation and modeling of bedrock erosion and uplift histories with studies of downstream sedimentary archives. We welcome papers covering any time periods and timescales, and any tectonic setting, which involve quantitative determinations of erosion, exhumation, or accumulation. We particularly encourage studies, such as the inversion of stratigraphic records and indicators of bedrock denudation histories, which can inform and improve our understanding of the linkages between erosion, transport, and sediment storage over a wide range of temporal and spatial scales.

Invited speakers for our session are Philip Allen, Yani Najman, and Chris Paola
