Session title:
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 
biogeochemical cycling.

We look forward to seeing you there!
