Welcome to the website for the 49th Binghamton Geomorphology Symposium, which is taking place from 5-7 October 2018 in Syracuse University, New York.


Processes controlling sediment initiation, transport, and deposition in watersheds are complex both in space and over time. Understanding the complexity of these processes at different spatial and temporal scales require collecting and analyzing data with different levels of detail, which may be achieved by using a variety of field, experimental, and modeling approaches, possibly combined with advanced technologies such as remote sensing, sediment tracing and dating, and unmanned aerial vehicle. New ideas and concepts around these approaches often arise from interdisciplinary collaboration among scientists in geography, geology, environmental engineering, freshwater ecology, and other relevant disciplines.

The 49th annual Binghamton Geomorphology Symposium will provide a forum for leading and emerging scientists and graduate students to exchange new ideas and catalyze potential collaboration on sediment complexity.

Funding is available to encourage PhD students and Early Career researchers to attend, generously supported by NSF.
