Geomorphology

Applied geomorphology  – the geomorphic and soil systems analysis as a synergic interface of natural processes, in the context of the extreme events and of the environmental protection and sustainable development context; the role of applied geomorphology in spatial planning issues and GIS solutions; geomorphic hazard and risk modeling; geomorphosite conservation and geopark development; present-day morphodinamics and relations with soil degradations.

Proposed topics

  • Present-day morphodynamics in the extreme events and regional environmental changes context, mapping, modeling and analysis.
  • Palaeogeomorphology and present-day morphodynamics – evolutive model development based on geological, geophysical and laboratory data.
  • Soil cover –land degradation, geomatic applications in scope of land bonitation and soil resource conservation.
  • Geomorphosites and geomorphic systems. Scientific and cultural value of landforms in tourism and spatial planning.
  • Hazard and risk model development, between terrain data, GIS analysis and validation of results.

GIS, remote sensing and geotechnology –the main fields of geomatics development and research are an open field for innovation in data mining, data processing and analysis. The discussion platform is open for all specialists that integrate these technologies within their researches in order to find solutions for an adequate analysis of geographic phenomena and for the management of environmental and social problems.

Proposed topics

  • GIS models for natural hazards and risk – from theoretical approach to model implementation and solution management.
  • Models in Earth observation – recent imagery, analysis techniques, results, validation and practical issues.
  • Digital cartography and virtual reality modeling – between traditional and non-conventional – data sources, methods, visualization techniques and social impact.
