  • 1.  Basin to Global Scale River Processes in the Anthropocene - abstract submission, AGU 2022

    Posted 26 days ago

    Dear all, 

    If you are studying large-scale river processes, please consider submitting an abstract to the AGU 2022 session H033 - Basin to Global Scale River Processes in the Anthropocene (see abstract below).

    AGU Fall Meeting 2022 will be held in Chicago and online, Dec 12-16, 2022. The abstract submission deadline is August 3, 2022.

     

    To submit, follow the instructions in the link below:

    Session abstract:

    Rivers are the veins of Earth, shaping its surface and ecosystems through complex physical, chemical, and biological interactions. Rivers are also severely impacted by human activities, from dams to global climate change. The increasing availability of satellite, airborne, and geospatially linked data combined with the recent development in cloud and parallel computing enables us to better observe, understand, and gain unprecedented insights into large-scale river systems. Such large-scale observations can be used to examine current, and potentially new, theories.

    This session welcomes observation-based studies that focus on the nature and dynamics of large (basin to global) river systems, including interactions of rivers with Earth's surface processes, hydrology, and ecosystems. New insights on either the impact of humans on large river systems (e.g., water quality, damming, and channel stabilization) or the impacts of river systems on humans (e.g., floods, erosion, and channel morphology adjustments) are especially encouraged.
