2006 - Geomorphosites and Landscape
Bagnes (Switzerland) 4-8 September 2006
European countries are dealing with landscape issues and the Council of Europe has adopted in 2000 in Florence the European Convention on Landscape. In this context, geomorphology is to be considered one of the main components of landscape changes. Recently, the European Union has adopted a Manifesto on Earth Heritage and Geodiversity that is supported by the International Association of Geomorphologists.
The Working Group "Geomorphosites" has been created within the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG) in 2001. Its objectives are to promote research on geomorphosite issues, on methodologies of assessment and mapping and on conservation of the geomorphological heritage, as well as the education to geomorphosites and landscape.
The intensive course "Geomorphosites and Landscapes" is organized in Switzerland and is opened to PhD students working on geomorphosite and landscape topics. The interested students are invited to send an application accompanied by a short CV and an abstract (one page) of the PhD project.
