Frontiers in Geomorphometry and Earth Surface Dynamics: Possibilities, Limitations and Perspectives (co-organized) | PICO
|Convener: Giulia Sofia | Co-Conveners: John K. Hillier , Susan Conway|
/ Tue, 19 Apr, 10:30–12:00
This session is inter-disciplinary with a focus on new techniques in digital terrain production and analysis independent of the subject, and/or field. Any insights are welcome but a clear, if perhaps embryonic or potential, link to a process sculpting the Earth’s surface is preferred.
The session’s aim is to foster collaboration and sharing of ideas across subject-boundaries, between technique developers and users, enabling us as a community to fully exploit the wealth of knowledge inherent in our digital landscape.
We actively encourage contributors to present work “in development”, as well as established techniques being used in a novel way. Young researchers are an essential part of driving innovation in our community and are strongly encouraged to present their work.
We wholeheartedly welcome contributions from any discipline which touches on geomorphometry, including but not exclusive to geomorphology (e.g., tectonic/volcanic/climatic/glacial), planetary science, archaeology, geo-biology, natural hazards, computer science. We are looking to hear about limitations, solutions, visions, and perspectives on where progress is needed in the context of digital landscapes (DEMs).
Just remember, lurking in another speciality, the solution may be out there!
