Information - GM14 Landscape response to changing climate
Climate exerts a first-order control on the rate and style of earth surface processes across a range of scales in time and space. This session considers how climate and climatic change has affected landform development and geomorphic processes such as erosion, river sediment discharge, and vegetation. How does the landscape respond to changing climatic conditions such as precipitation, temperature, storminess, or base-level change? Can we interpret landforms or a landscape in terms of climatic forcing? What governs the time-dependent response of geomorphic processes to changes in climatic forcing? How can we best predict the impact of future climate change on the geomorphic system? Contributions linking different time-scales would be especially welcome.
