This week has been declared International Geomorphology Week by the International Association of Geomorphologists, with the aim of promoting geomorphology in all its forms and mobilising the international community of geomorphologists to share their work and expertise.
Geomorphology is the study of landforms, their processes, form and sediments at the surface of the Earth (and sometimes on other planets). Understanding how landscapes operate and change is crucial to gaining a full understanding of the Earth system and enabling better environmental management.
Throughout the week we will be sharing case studies, geovisualisations, grant recipient stories, career profiles and other resources that celebrate and highlight the longstanding impact and contribution of geomorphology and geomorphologists across research and professional practice.
Follow the Twitter hashtag #IntGeomorphWeek2021 to learn more and join in.

Throughout February, we have been sharing resources via our social media that highlight the geographies of LGBTQ+ groups, increase their visibility and better understand their history and experiences.
The Society is home to a remarkable collection of original photographic glass and celluloid negatives captured by Frank Hurley, the official photographer of the 1914-1917 Endurance expedition.
