8th IAG International Conference on Geomorphology Special Session on Tropical Rivers

3 07 2013
Prof. Latrubesse in collaboration with Prof. Jose. C Stevaux (Brazil) and Prof. Rajiv Sinha (India) organized a special session in the 8th IAG International Conference on Geomorphology August, 27th to 31st, 2013,  Paris, France  Session S24A – Tropical Rivers:  Hydro-Physical Processes, Impacts, Hazards and Management (IGCP 582 and IAG Working Group on Tropical rivers)

geomorphology-second-circular_0The overall scope of the IGCP Unesco 582 project Hydro-Physical Processes, Impacts, Hazards and Management and the working group Tropical rivers of IAG is to provide an integrated assessment of long-term direct impacts of climate variability and human-induced change and management of tropical rivers basins by identification, quantification and modeling of key hydro-geomorphic indicators during the past and present times. The potential impacts of global change on fluvial systems and of their socioeconomic implications and flood hazards are also analyzed. Several of the largest and many of the most vulnerable rivers of the world are located in equatorial and monsoonal regions that are also some of the most active areas of fluvial sedimentation and erosion of the planet.This session has many presentations on Quaternary history, morphodynamics, hydro-geomorphology, hazards and management of tropical rivers from experts around the world.
