  Information - GM6 Transient and longer term behaviour of rivers from catchment to basin scales

Event Information
Bedrock river networks are the communicators of new base level
information across the landscape as well being the conduits for debris
carried into flanking sedimentary basins. However, full understanding of
landscape response to tectonic and climatic perturbations must bridge
the relevant scales at which key processes operate from the details of
channel geometry and reach-scale phenomena to the dynamic evolution of
entire drainage basins. This session invites presentations on bedrock
river systems which relate to catchment-scale processes or sediment
provenance studies as well as more detailed work on channel form,
bedrock incision and sediment transport. It will aim to reflect the most
recent research based on field or remotely sensed data, numerical
modelling, and experimental studies. Some of the key themes will include:
Consequences of river capture/diversion due to tectonics;
Evolution of hydraulic geometry in non-steady state bedrock rivers;
Reconstructing catchment evolution from sediment provenance;
Changes in incision and transport processes during base level rise/fall;
Spatio-temporal transitions in channel processes due to changing
climatic/tectonic conditions.
