Mountain Geomorphology
Conveners: Monique Fort, Samuel McColl, Pedro Val

Mountain landscapes are amongst the most dynamic on Earth, where the intersection of tectonics, topography, and climate results in unique geomorphological processes, landforms, biota, and hazards. The high potential energy and the sensitivity to climate change condition mountain landscapes for rapid change, in the form of erosion, sediment remobilisation, or landcover change. This session aims to bring together research that contributes to new understanding of the dynamic processes, landforms, sediment cascades, and hazards of mountains. We particularly welcome contributions that: 1) study relations and interactions between geologic, hydrologic, cryospheric, or biologic processes in shaping mountain environments; 2) present novel data on, or modelling of, the response of mountain environments to past, present, or future climate changes; 3) investigate long-term evolution, supported by geochronology or modelling studies; 4) demonstrate novel and innovative approaches for resolving outstanding questions in mountain geomorphology; or 5) provide lessons on the nature of hazards and their management within mountainous landscapes.
