We are very pleased to announce our next “Landscapes Live” online seminar of 2021 by Roman DiBiase (PennState University) that will occur on Thursday 18th March at 7 am PST / 10 am EST / 3 pm GMT / 4 pm CET on:
“Morphodynamics of mixed soil-mantled and bare bedrock hillslopes”
Abstract: Mountainous landscapes often consist of a mix of soil-mantled and bare-bedrock hillslopes that can be patchy in both space and time, with consequences for chemical weathering, sediment delivery to river networks, and hazards. Existing models developed for soil-mantled landscapes are poorly suited to explain the transition to bedrock hillslopes that emerges due to either short-term (e.g. wildfire) or long-term (e.g., tectonic) drivers of imbalance between soil production and erosion. In this talk, I will present a framework for the morphodynamics of hillslopes that are a patchwork of soil cover and bare bedrock, and discuss implications for lithologic controls on landscape evolution and the prediction of post-wildfire debris flows in steep landscapes.
This seminar will be live on Zoom and open to anyone interested (with a limit of 300 participants). You can register in advance for this Zoom meeting here:
After registering, you should receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. We will also post the Zoom link for this meeting on the seminar website: https://osur.univ-rennes1.fr/LandscapesLive/.
The Landscapes Live online seminar series will then continue the following weeks with:
- Thursday 25th March at 3 pm GMT/ 4 pm CET: Simon Mudd, University of Edinburgh
Previous talks are available on the website (https://osur.univ-rennes1.fr/LandscapesLive/). We are already planning a second seminar series this spring. Feel free to contact us if you have questions or suggestions: firstname.lastname@example.org
