Report on Romanian Young Geomorphologists Day 2018 – 1st Edition

Romanian Young Geomorphologists Day 2018 – 1st Edition, held at Faculty of Geography, Babeș-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca, Romania 13th July 2018

Participants of the Romanian Young Geomorphologists Day 2018

The first edition of Romanian Young Geomorphologists Day was held on Friday, 13th of July 2018, at the Faculty of Geography, Babeș-Bolyai University of Cluj-Napoca, under the organization of the Romanian Association of Geomorphologists and the auspices of the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG). A total number of 25 participants from the Romanian Academy, University of Bucharest, Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iaşi, Babeș-Bolyai University and Gheorghe Lazăr High School (Cluj-Napoca) attended this event. During the official opening, Dr. Mihai Micu (President of the Romanian Association of Geomorphologists, IAG Secretary General) gave an overview on the support provided by the International Association of Geomorphologists for the organization of such events, at both national level as well as at the international one, an International Day of the Young Geomorphologists being among the priorities of the IAG’s Training Programme. The opening was followed by two sessions of oral presentations gave by Romanian young geomorphologists, with focus on modern research methods applied for the analysis of various geomorphological processes such as SAR remote sensing techniques, reconstruction of paleoriver systems, landslide mapping and investigation, glaciation and deglaciation reconstruction, dendrogeomorphic reconstructions. In the week before the event, a Summer School entitled Dendrochronology applied in natural hazards assessment was organized by the team of Laboratory of Dendrochronology from the Faculty of Geography, Babeș-Bolyai University. The participants discussed their results as an extended oral presentation during the second session of the Romanian Young Geomorphologists Day. The concluding discussions emphasized the role of such meetings to be held yearly as a necessity for the young geomorphologists career development; the perspectives of organizing the next editions of the Romanian Young Geomorphologists Day during the Romanian National Symposium on Geomorphology was unanimously acknowledged.

Reports by Grant Holders – IAG GRANTS for “Geocuar 2018” 18-21 September 2018

Reports on the 7º Congreso Argentino de Cuaternario y Geomorfología: “Geocuar 2018”

Mosaic of images from Geocuar 2018 held in Argentina 18-21 September 2018, compiled by Igor Pessoa.

Igor A. Pessoa, Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro (UERJ)

I would like to thank the International Association of Geomorphologists for the student travel grants to participate in the 7o Congreso Argentino de Cuaternario y Geomorfología, “Geocuar 2018” organized by Argentine Association of Geomorphology and Quaternary Studies (AACG). During the conference I met Dra Andrea Coronato, and after we talked about the intentions of IAG, I become member of the Argentine group.  My idea now is to become an active member in both groups (Brazilian and Argentine) to promote the IAG initiatives between the Young Geormophologists.

In the conference I presented my work in the Antropoceno poster session, I was also able to attended the mid-day field trip, the short course about Biomineralization and environmental studies (class by Dra. Margarita Osterrieth and Dra Natalia Borrelli), and the post-meeting field trip in the Peninsula Valdés region. I am glad to announce that I received the premium of best poster presentation in the Antropoceno session where I could share my experience with analysis of Pb isotopes in marine bivalve shells by LA-ICP-MS (Laser Ablation Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry), using bivalve shells as a proxy of Pb pollution to address the source of lead pollution in marine ecosystems.

In brief, the IAG student travel grants promotes a chance to culturally enrich both professional and personal experiences. It comes as a benefit to the Young Geormophologists careers and promoting a good opening to meet new people. Finally, I would like to share some pictures of “Geocuar 2018” meeting with the members of IAG.

Gabriel Gómez Szmulewicz, Universidad Austral de Chile

My experience at the GEOCUAR 2018 conference was very enriching. On the one hand I gained experience in the poster presentation, but more important than that was the contact and relationship with colleagues of other nationalities who work on similar topics but who have different perspectives and experiences. With regard to the organization, I would like to greet and congratulate those in charge who made everything excellent, both in the presentations and poster sessions, as well as in the meals, in the camaraderie dinner and in the field. On the other hand, the meeting we had with Dr. Andrea Coronato was very fruitful to learn about the mechanisms and advantages of actively participating in the IAG. The three Chileans that participated were very enthusiastic about promoting and organizing the young geomorphologists of our country and thus develop more intensively the discipline.

Finally, I would like to thank the economic help the IAG gave me to participate in the GEOCUAR congress, since without it y couldn´t travel. I hope to keep in touch and to forge new South American relations.

Tribute to Chalmers Clapperton from South America

Thank you to James Clapperton for the video tribute used to illustrate this post.

The southern South American geomorphologist community says goodbye to Chalmers Clapperton, who passed away on October 23rd, 2018 at the age of 80.

Chalmers Clapperton was the most important glacial geologist and geomorphologist to work in Patagonia, and of the entire South American continent, since the pioneering works of Carl Caldenius in 1932 and Egidio Feruglio in 1950.

Chalmers contributions to the Geomorphology of Patagonia have become milestones to our knowledge of the surface processes and landforms of this southernmost region, both in Argentina and Chile. All studies performed by Chalmers in the South American continent have remained as classical benchmarks and due references to later workers. He was always right on paper and those of us who have tried to follow his work are fervent admirers devoted to carefully read and deeply meditate about the even more minute details of his papers.

His outstanding book on the Geomorphology and Quaternary Geology of South America, published in 1993, has been such a fantastic and unavoidable tool for all of us who have tried to follow his steps in South America that, after 25 years since its publication, we still call it “The Blue Bible”.

Chalmers has always been extremely friendly and generous with all his friends and colleagues of Argentina. He did so with great care and generosity, as he always did in all facets of his academic activities. He permanently helped us with our research projects, providing substantial ideas, valuable comments, rational alternatives and badly needed references. We will always remember his kind words, and will be grateful for having partly shared his time on Earth, his jubilant and profound sense of humour, and his blissful and lovely smile.

Jorge Rabassa and colleagues from the Quaternary Geology and Geomorphology laboratory, CADIC-CONICET, Ushuaia, Tierra de Fuego, Argentina.

November 5th, 2018.

Editor’s note: A detailed summary of Chalmers Clapperton’s contributions can be found in the editorial of the Special Issue of the Journal of Quaternary Science dedicated to him, here.

Report from the 19th Edition of the Joint Geomorphological Meeting

The IAG granted its auspices for the 19th Edition of the Joint Geomorphological Meeting (Italy, Romania, France, Belgium, Greece), took place in Buzău, Romania May 16-20 entitled “From field mapping and landform analysis to multi-risk assessment:challenges, uncertainties and transdisciplinarity”. Organized by the Institute of Geography (Romanian Academy) and the Faculty of Geography (Univ. of Bucharest) under the auspices of the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG) and the Geomorphologists Associations from Romania, Italy, France, Belgium and Greece, the Conference gathered together two scientific events with a long history – the 19th Joint Geomorphological Meeting Italy-Romania-France-Belgium-Greece andthe 34th Romanian National Symposium on Geomorphology, dedicated to 50 years of activity of Pătârlagele Natural Hazards Research Center.The Conference attracted 80 participants from 8 countries (Italy, France, Belgium, Greece, Japan, Canada, Poland and Romania), for two days of keynote lectures, oral and poster presentations alternating with two field trips in the Vrancea seismic region (the Curvature sector of the SE Carpathians). The conference aimed to encourage participation from all geomorphology fields, as well as inter- and transdisciplinary research, to provide a high-level but also a comfortable and friendly framework, to promote active discussions and challenging scientific debates. The topic of the conference was outlined by 7 keynote lectures:

  • Emil Sever Georgescu: Seismic landscape of Romania: challenges of a specific paradigm;
  • Monique Fort: Earthquakes impact on geomorphology (landforms and processes) in the Himalayas at different time scales;
  • Takashi Oguchi: Digital elevation models and their applications in geomorphology: historical review and future perspectives;
  • Alessandro Chelli: The activities of AIGeo Working Groups towards a new applied geomorphic map;
  • Olivier Dewitte: Landslide hazard assessment in an urban-sprawling context. A geomorphological approach in Bukavu, DR Congo;
  • Florin Pendea: Transdisciplinary approaches to advancing knowledge of glacio-isostatic rebound in Northern Canada;
  • Konstantinos Vouvalidis: Hydromorphological assessment of suburban torrents for flood protection: the flood event of West Attica, Greece).

In addition, 23 oral plenary presentations brought into discussions issues like tectonic jointing/control on large landslides occurrence/evolution, seismic landslides, the use of dendrochronology in the study of shallow and deep-seated slides or debris flows, glaciated karst, permafrost distribution modelling, improved landslide scarp detection, geoarchaeology and anthropogenic geomorphology, flood risk and reservoir siltation, anthropogenic subsidence,paleogeographic transformations, medium-term morphodynamics, natural variability and human influence in the evolution of deltas, variability in sediment budgets at river mouths, zoogeomorphic impact of animals in alpine environments or the use of multi-temporal satellite interferometry in landslide detection and monitoring, found their position in the multi-hazard paradigm. During a 3-hours long session, including 2-minute madness presentations, 25 posters with the following topics were intensely debated: fluvial multi-temporal evolution and risks (from fluvial terrace formation and channel forming and discharge to financial losses); snow avalanche susceptibility mapping; paleo-reconstruction of floodplains; coastal evolution patterns and nearshore sandbars positioning; mountain climate variability and its influence on permafrost and frost weathering; geomorphological assessments of major landslides and their role in relief evolution; neuro-fuzzy systems and neural network technology for drainage sub-basins classification and slope erosion by runoff analysis; changing Alpine glacier forelands; hillslope – river channel coupling, etc.

Two field trips were organized on Friday 18th May and Sunday 20th May, which provided a detailed image of the multi-hazard hotspot of Buzău Carpathians and Subcarpathians, on the conceptual framework of single-to-multi-hazard assessment and on the inter- and transdisciplinarity characteristics of geomorphology within a multi-risk approach. A multi-hazard hotspot of Europe, Vrancea seismic region is offering the perfect framework for observing, discussing and evaluating a multi-risk environment, where forms and processes, alongside prediction, modelling and validation of single and multi hazards are fitting perfectly within an extremely complex yet challenging system of approaches. The field trips were focused on high magnitude-low frequency landslides (deep seated, mainly dormant, with large reactivation potential) and their climatic and seismic triggers. Aspects concerning deepfocal seismicity, litho-structural conditioning, active and blind faults were also discussed. The human impact on the environment was emphasized through case-studies like road and reservoir construction. Morphodynamic mapping, landslide susceptibility and hazard scenarios,numerical and statistical models were detailed through field examples.

Following the active discussions held during both lectures and field trips, we are positive
that the conference opened new research ideas and collaboration initiatives. The 20th edition of the Joint Geomorphological Meeting will take place in Greece, organized by the Hellenic Committee for Geomorphology and Environment.
