“Coastal Boulder Deposit Research – An invitation to join a virtual field trip and open discussion”

Presented by Prof Dieter Kelletat / Dr Wibke Erdmann.

Abstract: Remote sensing, digital and modelling techniques help to understand and evaluate modern aspects of the variable and dynamic landscape that are coastlines, but are not capable to unearth past conditions and process histories. As an example of the old-school field inspection at and under the surface needed to learn more about coastlines, a virtual excursion and an open discussion on “Coastal Boulder Deposit Research” with special emphasis on an extraordinary natural field laboratory at the Irish west coast will be presented.

Time and date: Thursday, 18 November 2021, 9:30am CET.
