Linking geomorphic and ecological processes - call for AGU abstracts

Jointly with Andrew Simon (USDA NSL), Tim Beechie (NOAA) and Hamish Moir (Macauley Institute), Peter Downs is proposing a session at the upcoming American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting in San Francisco, December 14-18, exploring “Functional Links between Fluvial Geomorphic and Ecologic Processes, Quantifying Thresholds and Reference Conditions” (Hydrology Track – session H33).

Abstracts are due by September 3rd (23:59 Eastern Daylight Time) through AGU’s Abstract Central.

The AGU Fall Meeting draws an annual crowd of over 16,000 geophysicists from around the world and provides an opportunity for researchers, teachers, students, and consultants to present and review the latest issues affecting the Earth, the planets, and their environments in space. Stillwater has presented results of ongoing projects at several past meetings ranging from assessing sediment dynamics from a restoration perspective to developing a sediment budget for small streams to predictions and observations following removal of Marmot Dam.
