Today marks the first day of International Geomorphology Week 2023, which aims to promote geomorphology in all its forms and mobilise the international community of geomorphologists to share their work and expertise.
Geomorphology is the study of landforms, their processes, and the sediments at the surface of the Earth. Understanding how landscapes operate and change is crucial to gaining a full understanding of the Earth system and enabling better environmental management.
Over the week, which runs 1 to 7 March, we will be showcasing research by leading UK geomorphologists and how this is impacting how we monitor and manage the environment, sharing educational resources for use by teachers in schools at Key Stages Three, Four and Five, and highlighting jobs and careers in geomorphology to inspire those interested in finding out more about the field.
To get involved and share your geomorphological interests, follow us on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, and use #IntGeomorphWeek2023 to join the conversation.
