Dear colleagues and friends,
We would like to invite you to submit your abstract to the forthcoming
session at INQUA 2019 (Dublin, Ireland 25-31 July 2019).
Deadline for abstract submission: 9th January 2019.

Arctic landscape evolution and long-term coastal change
Session description: This session invites contributions dealing with
long-term changes in coastal environments in the Arctic and the relevant
processes that govern late Quaternary and Holocene landscape evolution.
Coasts in the polar regions are at present rapidly changing under the
influence of a pronounced climate warming trend. This induces erosion
due to the retreat of sea ice, the increase of wave forcing along coasts
and a general susceptibility of thawing permafrost shorelines. Long-term
rates of carbon and nutrient release, patterns of dynamic coastal
geomorphological change, studies of sedimentary archives of past
environments such as beach ridges or coastal lakes, and investigations
into past sea-level change are topics that help to understand the
functioning and response of modern Arctic coasts to climate change. The
coastal environment is here considered in a wide definition of
landscapes located at the land-sea transition, including terrestrial and
shelf sea environments that have e.g. an archival function or influence
on coastal processes. Thematically, this session is placed between
Quaternary geology and Holocene (coastal) geomorphology and aims at
contributions looking into sedimentary archives, climate forcing,
coastal erosion, or the release of organic matter and sediment over
decadal to millennial time scales. Contributions by early-career
researchers are highly encouraged as well as interdisciplinary studies
looking into the biological responses to coastal change and
We look forward to seeing you there!
