Reports by Grant Holders – IAG GRANTS for 11th Workshop of the IAG/AIG SEDIBUD Working Group – Baru (Hunedoara County, Romania), 5-8 September 2017

The International Association of Geomorphologists offered 2 grants of 250 euros to favour the participation of Young Geomorphologists (under 35 years old) worldwide (except Romania) in the Workshop organized by the IAG SEDIBUD (Sediment Budgets in Cold Environments) Working Group on the “Relationships between climate change, vegetation cover and sediment fluxes in high latitude/high altitude cold environments.

The 11th IAG/AIG SEDIBUD (Sediment budgets in Cold Environments) Workshop was held on 5-8 September 2017 at the Research Base of the Babeş-Bolyai University (UBB), located in Baru (Hunedoara County, Romania). It brought together researchers from various scientific fields with special interest and studies concerning the sediment transfer processes and budgets under changing climate and vegetation cover conditions in high latitude/high altitude cold environments worldwide.

A one-day field trip was organized in Parâng Mountains (Southern Carpathians), aiming at introducing the participants within the morphoclimatic context of the alpine areas in Carpathians. Several sites with past and contemporary geomorphic process activity (rock falls, rock avalanches, debris flows, snow avalanches, periglacial activity etc.). The participants got also an overview of the complex interactions between the sediment transfer processes and the mountain ecosystems (alpine meadows, subalpine shrubs and coniferous forests).

For further information on the Workshop, please visit the IAG SEDIBUD Working Group webpage http://www.geomorph.org/sedibud-working-group/

The selection of candidates was carried out by a Commission appointed by the IAG Executive Committee.

4 eligible applications were received for the grants available.

Reports by Grant Holders – IAG GRANTS for 9th International Conference on Geomorphology – New Delhi, India, 6-11 November 2017

The International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG/AIG) offered a number of grants for YOUNG GEOMORPHOLOGISTS (under 35 yrs old)  to take part in the 9th International Conference on Geomorphology (New Delhi, India, 6-11 November 2017) and related Intensive Course for Young Geomorphologists (Indian Institute of Remote Sensing, Dehra Dun, India, 12-17 November 2017).

The grants are offered to Young Geomorphologists from less-favoured countries worldwide (with a Purchasing Power Parity below 21,000 international dollars, according to the World Development Indicators database, World Bank, revised 11 October 2016).

The funds allocated are 15,000 euros from the IAG/AIG plus 3,000 euros from the European Geosciences Union (EGU) and 1,500 euros from the French Geomorphology Group (GFG). In recognition of the outstanding research carried out by the French geomorphologist Jean Tricart (1920-2003) in Latin America, Africa and Asia, one of the grant holders from these regions will be designated as the Tricart Scholar.

The Conference on Geomorphology will take place in New Delhi at Vigyan Bhawan. Organized by the Indian Institute of Geomorphologists and open to all scientists and practitioners, it will include scientific sessions, keynote lectures as well as a special Session and an Intensive Course for Young Geomorphologists dealing with ‘Geomorphology Field Training in tectonically active mountain regions, co-sponsored by the EGU. Field trips will be arranged in various parts of India and neighbouring countries, before, during and after the Conference.

For further information on the Conference, please visit the IAG/AIG website http://www.geomorph.org/ and the Conference website http://www.icg2017.com
