The laws of physics are simple, yet what we can see in nature are complex patterns and shapes continuously changing in time. Earth Science offers a vast variety of different forms, ranging from landscape morphologies like dunes, ripples, ice streams and river networks over multiphase flows to bio-geophysical patterns like stromatolites or vegetation patterns.
Often complex non-equilibrium processes lie behind the self
organization of these structures. Understanding these principles is one of the major challenges in Earth Science.
We invite contributions that seek a deeper understanding of
pattern-generating geophysical processes through both experiments or field observations as well as through theoretical modeling or computational simulations.
