WGSG 2018 - Trinity College Dublin

WGSG 2018

The WGSG (Working Group on Sediment Generation) is an informal international assemblage of scientists working on topics such as sediment generation and dispersal, composition and provenance, as well as mass balancing and modelling of the relevant processes. Anyone interested in some of these or in related topics is invited to join us. The group originated at the IAS2009 conference in Alghero, Sardinia (Italy), with the objective of addressing the problem of sediment generation in a systematic and quantitative way.

Fourth meeting of the WGSG
The 4th WGSG Meeting will be held from 27th to 29th June at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. A short course on "Quantifying Sediment Budgets" will run on the afternoon of Tuesday 26th June (see Programme). Similar to previous WGSG meetings, we intend to bring together a substantial number of leading scientists in the general field of sedimentary provenance analysis. All researchers with an interest in the general topics of weathering and erosion; sediment fingerprinting, tracking, transport, dispersal, deposition, and diagenesis; as well as mass balance calculations and numerical modelling, are cordially invited to attend.
