ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING AND CONFERENCE
The Annual Conference of the British Society for Geomorphology (BSG) is an international Open Conference. This Annual Meeting stimulates debate on new developments and advances in Geomorphology, and is a forum for emerging approaches to solve key challenges throughout pure and applied Geomorphology. Details of the next AGM can be found here
EARTH SURFACE PROCESSES AND LANDFORMS
ESP&L is the flagship international journal of the BSG, edited by Prof. Stuart Lane (Managing Editor) and five Associate Editors. The Journal publishes original research papers, Earth Surface Exchanges (shorter articles, commentaries, reviews and discussion papers) for rapid publication, technical communications and book reviews across all branches of geomorphology. Further details and member access here.
The BSG runs a workshop for new research students in December each year and we encourage all geomorphology PhD students to attend. The workshop introduces new skills and ideas, and you’ll meet fellow new postgraduates, practicing researchers and the BSG postgraduate representatives. Details of the next Windsor Workshop and how to register can be found here.
Further details of all BSG activities are available from this website OR alternatively contact the BSG Administrator.
