Geomorphological Mapping, GIS, Remote Sensing and Modelling
Conveners: Cenira Cunha, Leonardo Santos, Jean-Philippe Malet, Rui Figueiredo

Geomorphological mapping is an important tool for the detection and characterization of landforms and for understanding process dynamics on Earth and other planetary bodies. It allows representing the genesis of a landscape and their relationships with the structures and processes, being the basis for research in several other themes. Recent advances in technology and data collection, using Geographic Information Systems, spatial analysis models, remote sensing from several platforms (terrestrial, aerial, satellite) using active (LiDAR, radar) and passive (multispectral) sensors, as well as mobile/citizen-based applications have made available vast quantities of data for landscape analysis. These techniques offer unprecedented spatio-temporal density, resolution, sensitivity, and databases to document the processes, but they also created challenges in terms of data processing and analysis. We thus welcome contributions presenting perspectives in quantitative geomorphological and landform mapping with the aim of showcasing both methodological, technical, and applied studies. Contributions that demonstrate multi-method approaches (mature, and in development) are particularly encouraged. We also actively encourage contributors to present tools/methods that are "in development".
