Particulate Gravity Currents in the Environment, 2022

2nd to 4th September 2022

This conference will be held at University of Aberdeen, UK, co-hosted by Chengdu University of Technology, China.  It will be relevant to all those with an interest in the field of particulate gravity currents. Although we expect a many of the participants to be from the Earth and environmental sciences, we would like to encourage participation from all those working with:

  • turbidity currents and related flows
  • pyroclastic density currents
  • haboobs
  • powder snow avalanches
  • cohesive and non-cohesive non-Newtonian flows, including transitional or hybrid flows
  • fluid muds
  • rapid granular flows

To encourage interdisciplinary exchange, we will have keynote addresses.

Oral presentations may be in person or virtual, and will be of approximately 20 minutes including questions.  Posters may be submitted in support of, or independent of oral contributions and may also be presented virtually.  The balance of oral vs. poster sessions will depend on the number of participants, which we expect to be in the range of 150 to 250.
