Sediment Generation and Sediment Routing Systems

Event type:
Organised by:
Geological Society Events
Event status:

Roughly two thirds of the Earth's land surface is covered by sediment and sedimentary rocks, including nearly all agricultural and urban areas. Sedimentary rocks represent a valuable archive of geological and environmental change, which is key to reconstructing the geologic history of our planet. Sedimentary basins also form the source and reservoir of most hydrocarbon resources and many other economically valuable deposits. The Working Group on Sediment Generation (WGSG) is an informal group of international scientists who aim to understand how sediment is generated, transported and stored on the Earth's surface. For its sixth bi-annual meeting, the WGSG has teamed up with the Geological Society to bring together sedimentologists, geomorphologists, rock physicists, geochemists and other scientists to discuss sediment generation and sediment routing systems in modern environments and deep geologic time. The conference will cover a wide range of topics including theoretical and applied research; laboratory and field-based studies; as well as technological and methodological advances. The program will include lectures from senior and junior scientists, poster sessions and public debates, as well as hands-on workshops in sedimentary research.
