Metropolitan State University of Denver
Denver Colorado, United States
11 - 13 October 2019
Welcome to the 50th Binghamton Geomorphology Symposium!
  • Metropolitan State University of Denver, CO USA
  • October 11-13th, 2019
  • The BGS: 50 years of Enhancing Geomorphology

Historical Context

  • The 50th Binghamton Geomorphology Symposium (BGS) will provide a perspective of geomorphology from its historical past to potential advancements in the future. The BGS: 50 years of enhancing geomorphology will have six main themes based on the foundation of topics presented at the previous symposia. Themes include:
    • Forces 1 – Glacial, fluvial, and Periglacial;
    • Forces 2 – Tectonics and Gravity;
    • Biogeomorphology and Soils;
    • Concepts and Paradigms;
    • Anthropogenic influences; and
    • Applications.
  • Each theme will have an introductory perspective talk and will provide a perspective of how the BGS has advanced the research frontier. This will be followed by several presentations that will focus on the present and future state of research related to the BCS themes.
  • The format of the BGS is simple. Day 1 consists of an optional field trip to Rocky Mountain National Park, followed by an evening ice-breaker networking event. Day 2 consists of one main session (no concurrent presentations), followed by an evening poster presentation session, culminating in a dinner function with a keynote address given by Vic Baker. Day 3 resumes with invited speaker presentations, ending by mid-day to allow travel on Sunday afternoon. Most meals, drinks, and snacks are included in the Registration fee.
