In particular, The project will undertake the following overarching scientific questions: 1) what are the climatic and geomorphic controls on the expansion/contraction of river networks 2) what is the length of temporary streams and what is their impact on catchment-scale biogeochemical processes and stream water quality across scales These challenging issues will be addressed by developing a novel theoretical framework complemented by extensive field observations within four representative sites along a climatic gradient in the eu.
A beach ridge is a wave-swept or wave-deposited coastal geomorphic feature running parallel to a shoreline.
The process is then reversed in the spring, as the ice sublimates, and this seasonal interplay may be a really important geomorphic process.
The next phase of work, supported by Europlanet Horizon 2020 funding, will see the team head to the Open University Mars Chamber to assess the influence of Martian atmospheric conditions on these new geomorphic processes and test a numerical model developed by Professor McElwaine.
He reviews the geomorphology in terms of a regional overview, Holocene landform evolution, and the modern geomorphic system.
We have undertaken tectonic geomorphic, geochronological and geodetic investigations along the Chaman fault in search for evidence of temporal and spatial variations in motion.
The project redesign, using fluvial geomorphic principles developed locally by mine environmental engineers, replaced an inefficient diversion channel with a naturally functioning stream channel and stable landform.

Through natural geomorphic processes, flood barriers are built by flooding itself.
Entrenchment of the active channel is often an inherent process in landscape evolution, such as valley development, but the exceedance of certain geomorphic thresholds due to anthropogenic disturbance may lead to disequilibrium and channel response in the form of incision (Schumm et al, 1984).
The more progressive Loon, a second-class municipality (P45 million-P55 million) wants to put up a Loon Coastal Geomorphic Conservation Park in their portion of the strip in Barangays Cuasi, Song-on, Tangnan, Tontonan and Napo.
Geo-tourism has a distinctive feature that links the act of viewing the beauty of the geological and geomorphic features with the appreciation of these features through the gaining of knowledge that combines the enjoyment of a site's beauty with an intrinsic value of the site.
