SedyMONT Summer School

ESF TOPO-EUROPE SedyMONT Summer School on Detecting Landscape Change
August 31 - September 08, 2010, Loen, Norway.

Workshop objectives:
To provide TOPO-EUROPE PhD students with:

  1. a better general understanding of sediment transfer in mountainous catchments with a major focus on regions that have not been strongly affected by permafrost conditions during the last decades,
  2. information on past and present climate variability and scenarios of future climate change and their uncertainties, and
  3. insight into how to predict landscape response to possible changes in hydromorphological conditions.

Provisional programme of the activities:

  • 31 August 2010: Arrival of participants at Sande Camping, Loen, western Norway, welcome and dinner in the evening.
  • 1-2 September 2010: Lectures provided by invited experts and discussion rounds with the PhD students.
  • 3 September 2010: Field excursion to Erdalen.
  • 4 September 2010: Field excursion to Bødalen.
  • 5-7 September 2010: Presentation of PhD projects (talks) and connected methods / techniques (in field).
  • 8 September 2010: Final discussion and departure of participants.

The aim of the 2010 workshop and summer school (5 ECTS for PhD students) is to teach TopoEurope PhD students about surface dynamics and controlling parameters, and to educate them in the application of high-technology tools that allow to quantify process rates, sediment transport and landscape change for short time scales.
