The 11th Workshop of the IAG/AIG SEDIBUD (Sediment Budgets in Cold Environments)
Working Group

" Relationships between climate change, vegetation cover and sediment fluxes in high latitude/high altitude cold environments " Research Station of the Babeş – Bolyai University Baru (Hunedoara County, Romania) September 5 – 8 , 2017.

Workshop will offer an opportunity for participants to discuss the effectiveness of geomorphic processes under past and present – day climate conditions, by focusing on the complex interactions  between the erosional, sediment transfer and depositional processes and the varying vegetation cover.

The workshop will be held between 5 – 8 September 2017 at the Research Station of the Babeş-Bolyai University (UBB), located in Baru (Hunedoara County, Romania). A one-day field trip will be organized in Parâng Mountains (Southern Carpathians) and will present to the participants the morphoclimatic context of the Carpathians alpine areas. Several study sites with past and contemporary geomorphic process activity (rockfalls, rock avalanches, debris flows, snow-avalanches, periglacial activity, etc.) and the associated landforms will be visited during the field-trip day.
