Dear all,

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:
