14-19th April 2024: European Geosciences Union (EGU): Coastal Dunes, Aeolian Processes, and Human Impacts (GM9.3), Vienna

Conference session at the upcoming European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly 2024, titled 'Beyond the shoreline: Coastal Dunes, Aeolian Processes, and Human Impacts' (GM9.3).
Abstract Submission Deadline: January 10, 2024 13:00 CET

Session Overview:

Coastal dunes, essential for safety and habitat development, are facing unprecedented challenges due to climate change factors. Increased storm events, shifting wind patterns, and rising sea levels are influencing the long-term evolution of coastal landscapes, creating a complex interplay of internal dynamics within the eco-physical system.

Despite qualitative insights into individual factors shaping coastal dune landscapes, a critical gap exists in quantifying their integrated effects on a landscape scale. This session aims to bridge that knowledge gap by exploring the intricate relationships between coastal dunes, aeolian sediment transport, human interventions, climate change, and ecosystem functions.

Why Participate?

  • Explore cutting-edge research in coastal dunes, aeolian processes, and human impacts.

  • Foster knowledge exchange through field measurements/experiments and modelling.

  • Contribute to the development of management strategies for safeguarding coastal ecosystems.
