  Information - SSP25 Environmental sedimentology (co-sponsored by IAS)

Event Information
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.

Preliminary List of Solicited Speakers
Prof. Ulrich Forstner (Univ of Harburg, Germany) "Historical contaminated sediments at the river basin scale"

Dr Phil Owens (Univ Northern British Columbia, Canada) "Transfer and deposition of contaminated sediments" (title to be confirmed)

International Association of Sedimentologists
