For the past decades, new methods have been developed to quantify the rate at which landscapes evolve. Cosmogenic nuclides and other methods have boosted the quantification of earth surface processes at various temporal and spatial scales providing constraints on the age and evolution of landforms beyond the Quaternary, erosion rates or soil development. Some of these methods are now routinely applied by the earth science community. Yet, novel applications, methods and isotopic systems are continuously being developed and tested. These emerging applications and methods include but are not limited to: i) novel applications of cosmogenic nuclides such as isochron burial dating of sediments, sediment residence times, millennial cliff retreat rates, landslide related catchment erosion, the soil dynamics and production ii) novel isotopic systems implying cosmogenic nuclides (36Cl, in-situ14C, meteoric 10Be…) or other elements that constrain rates of evolution at the earth surface.
We encourage the presentations illustrating the diversity and/or originality of recent approaches using cosmogenic nuclides and other methods to quantify geomorphic processes.
