Call for Abstracts - Session CSP2.7 Coastal sediment dynamics from past to present - IAS Toulouse 2017


Società Geologica Italiana

Dear colleagues,
next IAS meeting will be held in Toulouse (France - 10/12th October 2017).
We invite you to submit an abstract to the session CSP2.7 (abstract deadline has just extended to 19th June):

Coastal Sediment Dynamics from Past to Present

This session is focused on the physical aspects related with the erosive and depositional processes in various coastal environments. We suppose to cover a wide range of transitional to shallow-sea environments (i.e. beaches, barrier island systems, cliffs and coastal bluffs, deltas, sheltered bays, semi enclosed basins, coastal lagoons and marshes) analysing the role of storm-waves, tides and currents in the short and long-term morpho-sedimentary evolution of coastal areas. This session will host studies on ancient shallow-sea successions, present-day examples and numerical-analogical approaches. We encourage also interdisciplinary contributions that analyse the interactions between physical and biological processes in the sediment dynamics including the human impact on the coastal evolution.
