Forthcoming International Conference on Stormy Geomorphology: geomorphic contributions in an age of extremes to be held at the Royal Geographical Society in London on 11 May 2015.

Extreme storms and floods are increasing in frequency and intensity across much of the globe. Geomorphology has much to contribute to help understand, measure, predict and manage the landscape and human effects of extreme events. Global state-of-the-art understanding of geomorphic contributions to extreme events will be presented at a one-day conference in London on 11 May 2015. Eminent invited speakers from across the globe will be presenting, including Professor Frank Magilligan, Professor Jacky Croke, Professor Stuart Lane, Professor Mikkel Fruergaard, Professor Mark Macklin, Professor Steve Darby and Dr. Richard Whitehouse. The event will provide academic and end-user perspectives on the critical role geomorphology can play in managing the landscape-scale impacts of extreme events, and their consequences for human lives and livelihoods.

The event is jointly sponsored by the Royal Geographical Society, the British Society for Geomorphology and Wiley. The full programme and registration details will be available shortly. Please mark the date in your calendar as it will prove to be an informative, engaging and stimulating event.
