Particulate Gravity Currents in the Environment, 2022

2nd to 4th September 2022

This conference, previously scheduled to take place in Chengdu, will now 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 will be of approximately 20 minutes including questions, and may be supported by poster presentations; posters independent of oral presentations will also be welcomed. 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.
