Information - SSP25 Environmental sedimentology (co-sponsored by IAS)
Anthropogenic pressures on sediment systems have the potential to impact upon rates and extents of sediment transport and accumulation, to modify sediment dynamics and to impact upon sediment composition through contamination. There is a need to understand and quantify
these impacts with a view to informing appropriate and sustainable management of sediment systems. This session aims to bring together researchers working on contemporaneous shallow marine systems and fluvial and lacustrine systems in upland and lowland environments that are perceived to be experiencing anthropogenic pressures, and invites posters and talks highlighting the chemical, physical and biological processes therein.
