Auspices for the Summer School in Geomorphological Mapping (Camerino, Italy, 2-8 September 2024)


The IAG is happy to give its auspices for the Summer School in Geomorphological Mapping, which will be held in Camerino (Italy) on 2nd to 8th September 2024! This event is organised by the Geology Division of the University of Camerino, and supported by the AIGeo (Italian Association of Physical Geography and Geomorphology), the ISPRA (Higher Institute for Environmental Protection and Research of the Ministry of Ecological Transition of the Italian Government) and the CNG (National Council of Geologists).

The aim of the course is to develop the experience of participants in geomorphological mapping of tectonically active areas. The Summer School will include a few days of teaching, followed by the application of the course by creating specific geomorphological maps. Preparation of those maps will include, among others: analysis of remote sensing data, field survey, sample collection and subsequent laboratory analyses…

The University of Camerino is located in Central Italy, which underwent a strong seismic crisis in 2016-2017. Hence, the Summer School will be focused on the remaining geomorphological features of that crisis: surface faulting, large landslides, or deep-seated gravitational slope deformations.
