    Dear Colleagues,

    We encourage you to submit an abstract to AGU session OS035: "Sediment Processes on Estuaries and Shelves & Their Impact on Morphology, Biogeochemistry, and Ecology".  Please also share widely with your colleagues and networks.  Abstracts are due on Wednesday, July 31 and the AGU Fall meeting will be held 9-13 December 2024 in Washington D.C.    

    Additional information on submitting an AGU abstract:

    Session Description:

    Sediment erosion, transport and deposition in shallow marine environments shape morphology and the stratigraphic record, as well as biogeochemistry and ecology.  On short timescales, sediment transport occurs via mechanisms including suspension and fluid muds, and varies with tides, storms and other drivers. On longer timescales, factors such as geologic setting and climate impact sedimentary processes. Understanding these processes is particularly important in shallow marine systems, which typically have tight benthic-pelagic coupling. On short timescales, for example, seabed fluxes and transport of particle-associated organic matter impact biogeochemistry and organisms. Over longer timescales, morphology and seabed texture impact habitats and the fate of carbon, nutrients, and pollutants.

    This session encourages abstracts on sedimentary processes over a range of spatiotemporal scales, and/or their impact on morphological, geological, biogeochemical and ecological processes.  Submissions may focus on estuaries, shelves, wetlands, and/or any coastal or nearshore environment, and use observational, experimental, modeling, or other approaches.

    Sincerely,

    Julia Moriarty (CU Boulder), Courtney Harris (VIMS), Dongxiao Yin (WHOI), and Cindy Palinkas (UMCES)
