  Information - GM8.1 Past environmental systems and human occupation: links between geoarcheology and geomorphology

Event Information
This session aims to highlight the contribution of geomorphological studies performed in relation to archaeological sites and scopes to a) the characterization and measurement of geormorphological processes; and b) the
understanding of the relationships between an evoluating environment and the history of human settling and activities. Approaches will be based on the study of sediment archives at different time and space scales. The session will also welcome the presentation of results from pluridisciplinary programmes aiming at reconstructing the depositional history of sediments recording the environment along the Holocene period, and its relationships to man's activities and history.
There is no geographic restricted area. Contributors are invited to provide, when possible, absolute dating in order to offer precise choronologies in the case of a possible publication. Chronostratigraphic evidences can also make use of other markers such as archaeological remains or artefacts, volcanic deposits, pollen chronozones etc...
