September 14 - 15, 2017    london , United Kingdom
This meeting, which aims to bring together both academic researchers and practitioners, will explore how flood risk is not a static entity but an evolving feature of these systems. It will explore how the paleo-record can be used to better constrain frequency and magnitude of events, placing them in an improved context and will also explore how incorporating morphodynamics and sediment flux predictions are helping improve the prediction of flooding and flood risk into the future. This is particularly important for flood mitigation and adaptation as the agencies involved in management solutions are moving from hard engineering approaches towards a softer, nature-based, approach to reducing flood risk. Call for Abstract - deadline Friday 16 June 2017 There is a call for abstract and oral and poster contributions are invited. Abstracts should be send as a Word document to registrations@geolsoc.org.uk
