Contributions are sought for presentations on state-of-the-art research and operational developments in Alpine Geology, in particular related to the evolution of the Alps and neighbouring Mediterranean orogens.
3 September 2013
The aim of this workshop is to compare glacial geomorphological mapping by different interpreters for statistically representative synthetic drumlins within a real landscape. This can then inform both the differences/similarities in mapping and quantify the impacts upon the calculation of derived metrics. The workshop will lead to a joint publication of all participants, developing a criteria for interpretive mapping that will facilitate comparability and compatibility of mapped outputs

These include: GIA modelling, ice sheet reconstructions, geodesy, glaciology and seismology. The principal interest is in discussing existing, and initiating new, studies at the interface between these disciplines. We also seek to maximise the use of existing and future datasets to provide the most robust constraints on models.
Rodinia 2013: Supercontinental Cycles and Geodynamics Symposium
20–24 May 2013
