1st Workshop of the IAG/AIG Working Group DENUCHANGE: Denudation and Environmental Changes in Different Morphoclimatic Zones

Date / lieu : 25-27 septembre 2018 / Storkowo-Szczecinek

There is general agreement that global environmental changes will have significant effects on Earth surface systems. The question how global environmental changes will affect our landscapes and the way we interact with it is therefore of highest importance. Denudation, including both chemical and mechanical processes, is of high relevance for Earth surface and landscape development and the transfer of solutes, nutrients and sediments from headwater system through main stem of drainage basin systems to the world oceans. Denudation is controlled by a range of environmental drivers and can be significantly affected by human activity. The better understanding of possible effects of ongoing and accelerated environmental changes on present-day denudation requires systematic and quantitative studies (environmental monitoring) on the actual drivers of denudational processes in differentiated landscape controls. Only if we have an improved knowledge of drivers, mechanisms and rates of contemporary denudational processes across a range of different selected climatic environments, possible effects of global environmental changes on denudation can be better assessed. Special focus must be given to selected morphoclimatic zones that react particularly sensitive to ongoing climatic changes and human activities.
