On 27th June afternoon, as soon as the meeting and election of the AIGeo Junior Council & Meeting of the YGs’ delegates finished, about 40 participants from Italy, Switzerland, Romania, Costa Rica, France, India, Russia, Austria and Brazil moved to Courmayeur (Valle d’Aosta Region, Italy) by bus. We were hosted in shared rooms at “Rifugio Monte Bianco”, located at 1700 m a.s.l. and surrounded by the breathtaking landscape of the Mont Blanc massif.

Dinner at “Rifugio Monte Bianco”

After a delicious traditional dinner, Susan Conway from the Universitè de Nantes took an interesting “lesson under the stars” on the geomorphological “Mars-forms”, to discover periglacial geomorphology from the Alps to … Mars!

Lecture by Dr. Susan Conway

The following day, the field-trip, organized by the University of Turin, along the Veny Valley on the Italian side of the Mont Blanc Massif (4808 m a.s.l.), NW-Alps, took place starting from the Rifugio.

Prof M. Giardino during the field trip explanation

The field trip started with an introduction on the main geological and geomorphological aspects held by Prof. M. Giardino (University of Turin) and Prof. Philip Deline (University of Savoie Mont Blanc). Then we moved along the “Sentiero Balcone” (Balcony path), an ideal trail, following the right hydrographic side of the Veny Valley, that allows to have a very good view not only of the Miage Glacier, the most important debris covered glacier of the Italian Alps, but also of others landforms and processes such as glacial cirques, moraines and landslides. From the Balcony, we saw a clearly ongoing active process of rock avalanche!!

Panoramic view

Successively, we descended to the Plan Combal to see closely the moraines of the Miage and discuss the recent evolution, in terms of retreatment, of the glacier.

View of the Miage glacier from the “Balcone”

Finally, we saw the ice cliff and the Miage lake (2700m a.s.l.) actually separated into three different subbasin. Hydrological issues related to glacier and lake interaction were also illustrated. From the lake, we concluded our field trip at the bottom of the fluvioglacial plain of the la Visaille having a look, during the descent, on lateral moraines and mass wasting phenomena that are still active.

Report on 11th Workshop of Polish Young Geomorphologists Oct 2018

11th Workshop of Polish Young Geomorphologists: ‘Modelling and visualization of 3D forms, phenomena and geomorphic processes’ 

The eleventh edition of Polish Young Geomorphologists Workshops, whose main initiator and co-organizer was the Association of Polish Geomorphologists (APG), was held on October 22-24, 2018, at the Faculty of Earth Sciences and Spatial Management of the Maria Curie-Skłodowska University in Lublin. Sixteen young students of geomorphology took part in the meeting entitled ‘Modelling and visualization of 3D forms, phenomena and geomorphic processes’. The participants represented the University of Łódź, the University of Wrocław, Maria Curie-Skłodowska University in Lublin, Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń, the University of Silesia in Katowice and the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw.

The idea of the workshop was to introduce participants with the most recent research trends focused on the high-definition field surveys, modelling and visualization of landforms, geomorphic phenomena and processes and acquiring knowledge in the field of research planning and organizing, strategies for raising funds, rules for submitting of research projects, as well as rules of preparation of lectures and scientific publications.

The workshop program included three days of training with varied formats, which were linked by two main themes. The first ‘Analysis of the stability of slope sediments’, conducted by dr Piotr Demczuk, was devoted to the methodology for testing slope sediments and their numerical analysis in the context of landslide hazard, using geotechnical tools. The second ‘Geomodelling the loess gullies’, led by prof. Grzegorz Janicki – included practical training using terrestrial laser scanning (TLS & 3D technology). President of Association of Polish Geomorphologists – prof. Małgorzata Mazurek – presented a historical draft of the origin and development of the Association and the functioning and scope of its activities, with particular attention to the place of young adepts of science in the structure of this organization. In addition, as part of the lecture of prof. Piotr Migoń (University of Wrocław), workshop participants had the opportunity to learn about the history, structure and functioning of the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG), and listeners learnt about the benefits resulting from activities within this organization. Workshop participants found out more about planning and organization of scientific research presented by prof. Zbigniew Zwoliński (Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań) as well as strategy of raising research funding and rules for the preparation of research projects – led by prof. Piotr Migoń. Each of the participants presented the concept of their own research project. The workshop program also included issues related to the preparation of scientific publications and rules for their review – prepared by dr Anna Orłowska.

In the summary of the meeting, attention was paid to the important role played by such meetings in the scientific development of every researcher. The workshops ended with handing over the certificates of the completion of the 11th Young Geomorphologists’ Workshop and an invitation for their next edition, which will take place in 2019 at the University of Łódź.

Reports by Grant Holders – IAG GRANTS for Windsor 3-6 December 2018

Giulia Iacobucci and Lidia Selmi were awarded grants by the IAG to attend the BSG Post-Graduate Training Workshop held in Windsor, UK from 3rd to 6th December 2018. Their full reports can be found here:

Here are some highlights:

From Lidia “we had the occasion to present our own PhD project, with students that have similar interests. In my opinion, this was a real useful session, because we presented the project in a small group and we had time to share experiences and advices”

“In fact, not only the ‘organized’ talks were fundamental, but also the tasty coffee breaks or the after dinners, when, in front a cup of tea or playing a match at the ping pong table, I had the occasion to talk informally with professors, to get to know other students better and to share with them experiences, fears and ideas.”

From Giulia “The most remarkable thing is the possibility of public speaking: I have prepared two talks about my PhD project, one presented to all attendees and the other one to a small group, giving you suggestions or asking questions. Moreover, a third talk has been prepared with other students: it is a great experience in which you have to present a research project about a topic far from your area of interest and within only two hours.”

“Besides the public speaking, you have also the opportunity of knowing the PhD experiences of the Post-doctoral researchers, which give you precious advice and report their personal challenges and opportunities, also considering the mental stress and health connecting problems.”

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.

EGU / FORM-OSE Post-graduate Training School 2016 – “Landslides and other Geological Hazards in Active Volcanic Environments”

The scope of the Training School is to provide an overview of landslides and other geological hazards processes and their complex interactions and to present a state of the art for concepts, research, models, monitoring techniques/technologies and warning systems. Updated knowledge on traditional and innovative multidisciplinary methods and techniques will be presented. Landslides and their triggering mechanisms, namely rainfall, seismicity and volcanic eruptions, will be explored not restricting their role as triggering factors, but considering all as main characters in a hazardous scenario.

The course will be held on 4-9 July 2016 in the São Miguel Island of the Azores Archipelago, composed by nine volcanic islands located in the North Atlantic Ocean. Due to its geographical and geodynamic setting it offers a wide diversity of natural hazards. São Miguel is one of the most affected islands by natural hazards, namely by volcanic eruptions, volcanic degassing processes, earthquakes, storms, landslides, floods and tsunamis. Since its settlement, in the 15th century, hundreds of cascade events were responsible for victims and important socioeconomic impact. By this diversity of natural phenomena, this area is considered an important natural laboratory and perfect for the application of several methods and techniques during the course training and field trips.

WGTG Summer School 2016 – “Alps vs. Apennines: Tectonic Geomorphology of Mountains”

WGTG Summer School 2016

“Alps vs. Apennines: Tectonic Geomorphology of Mountains” – Italy: Western Alps-Central Apennines, July 2-9, 2016

The Summer School is intended for students and early career scientists involved in tectonic geomorphology studies. It aims to offer a comprehensive overview of pioneering techniques, innovative and multidisciplinary approaches for meeting the growing needs of knowledge on both long-term tectonic uplift and sudden geomorphological changes.

The Summer School includes lectures (2 days), laboratory and field activities (4 days). A group of experts from different countries will present the state of the art on tectonic geomorphology and related methods. Case studies from a diversity of geomorphotectonic environments will be analyzed and discussed. A rich programme of field activity will be developed both in the Western Alps, symbol of a long-term evolution orogen, and in central Apennines, where recent seismicity (L’Aquila earthquake, 2009) caused casualties, damages and sudden geomorphological changes.
