Dear Colleagues:
We encourage submission of abstracts to the Earth and Planetary Surface
Processes session EP09 From Rock to Clay: Evolution of Grain-Size
Distributions in Geomorphic Systems for the AGU Fall Meeting to be held
5-9 December, 2011.

This session aims to provide a lively forum to review all aspects of
grain-size investigations in geomorphic, sedimentological, and
paleoenvironmental studies applied to terrestrial, marine, lacustrine,
or atmospheric environments.

The deadline for submission of abstracts is 04 August, 2011, 2359 EDT
(Eastern Daylight Time). Abstract Submissions is open.

Session Announcement:
Landscapes are shaped by processes that produce, transport and deposit
mixtures of particles. Information on how sediment has been produced and
modified is encoded in grain size distributions, which evolve after
sediment production by mixing from different sources, size reduction by
physical and chemical attack, and sorting during transport and
deposition. Understanding how size distributions evolve is central to
problems in hillslope, fluvial, aeolian, coastal, and submarine systems.
We seek contributions from studies encompassing sediment dispersal and
sorting, land-atmosphere processes, measurement techniques and data
analysis, and statistical characterization and modeling of particle size
distributions.

Submissions by students and young scientists are particularly encouraged!

Conveners:
P. Thompson Davis, Björn Machalett, Eric A. Oches, Clifford S. Riebe &
Leonard S. Sklar

AGU Index terms: 1824, 1825, 1826, 1862
