A new special collection invites studies on a new era of models and knowledge that provide predictions or insights into predictability in coastal geomorphology.
Ice Age climate swings shaped the equatorial basin’s terrain—and possibly its ecology—faster than previously thought.
Miners in Alaska rerouted a river to search for gold. One hundred years later, the new channel is teaching scientists how rivers shape Earth.
A new study pinpoints grain scale dynamics during binary interactions between barchan dunes.
New research suggests a more settled terminology for Martian aeolian landforms based on size and geomorphology.
Suzanne P. Anderson received the 2020 G. K. Gilbert Award in Surface Processes at AGU’s virtual Fall Meeting 2020. The award recognizes “sustained and outstanding contributions to the field of Earth and planetary surface processes from a mid-career or senior scientist.”
Many of the house-sized boulders that litter Himalayan river channels were transported thousands of years ago by glacial lake outburst floods, new observations suggest.
Signals in layers of sedimentary rock hint at climates and ecosystems come and gone. Understanding this history can help us forecast the future, but challenges abound.
Decades of research on river deltas identify gaps in our knowledge of delta behavior and the tools required to fill them in.
In the company of other explorers as passionate as he was about geomorphology, Gilbert derived one fundamental geological insight after another from the landscapes of the American West.
