Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to submit an abstract to the EGU 2018 PICO session TS4.2/CL2.22/GM4.8

   —  Earth Surface Interactions With Atmosphere and Solid Earth - Rates and Dates — 

Invited Presentation:
Dr. Marissa M. TremblayUniversity of Glasgow

If you want to apply for travel support you must submit your abstract by Friday, 1 December 2017.
For details see

The abstract submission deadline is Wednesday, 10 January 2018, 13:00 CET.


Quantifying how tectonic and climate processes shape Earth’s surface is of primary importance for understanding surface evolution in tectonically active settings. While the impact of tectonics has been recognized in long-term orogenic evolution, the investigation and quantification of potential feedback mechanisms between climate, erosion, uplift and vegetation remains challenging over different temporal and spatial scales. Another issue in analyzing the complex relationships between climate and tectonics is that they are often treated as separate systems rather than Earth system components that interact with one another. First order constraints on surface processes are documented in a diverse range of geomorphic, stratigraphic, and sedimentary records. Second order constraints can be found in paleo-erosion and paleo-climate proxies and modelling results.
We invite contributions that investigate these interactions on different time scales from short-term extreme events to long-term forcings that determine rates and dates of surface evolution (e.g., TCN, OSL, thermochronology, among others) and address the coupling between climate-tectonic impacts on surface processes. We also welcome innovative numerical and analogue experimental studies that quantify changes in landscape evolution, such as changes in relief, slopes, erosion, and precipitation over different spatial scales, as well as paleo-climate modelling experiments.

We look forward to receiving your contribution!
