  Information - GM23 Reconstructing the paleolandscape: available tools

Event Information
Recostructing the topography as it was in the past is key exercise to understand the role that tectonics and climate play in shaping the landscape. The development of a suite of exciting new techniques has provided in the last decade or so the tools to understand rates of surface processes and landscape evolution over geolical time scales. These techniques include cosmogenic isotope analysis and low temperature thermochronometers, as well as powerful computer-based numerical models that enable for the first time the exploration of different "scenarios" of tectonic and landscape evolution. We encourage contributions from a wide array of research fields that focus on the understanding and constraining the relationship between tectonic and surface processes, the rates of relief development over different time scales in all geological settings. Interdisciplinary contributions focusing on the combinations of such new techniques with the numerical models are particarly welcome.
