Event description

Description


Part of the BGH workshop, we will conduct a 1 day short course on surface processes modelling on the 27 of February in the Madsen Building conference room at the School of Geosciences, The University of Sydney, Australia. The course will start at 9:30am, but it is recommended that you arrive at 9am to get set up (get wifi internet access, download/install software, and so on). We will finish up at about 4:30 pm.

The workshop aims to introduce the 2017 developments with emphasise on erosion/deposition, stratal architecture visualisation and carbonate reef modelling. A quick refresher on previous capabilities will be done before diving into the new ones. Depending on time and interest, we will be working on the following processes through simple examples:

  • linear and non-linear hillslope processes
  • fluvial incision laws: the usual detachment-limited model and the newly transport-limited ones (linear decline, almost parabolic, dynamic cover, saltation abrasion and abrasion incision)
  • wave-induced longshore drift and an experimental version of carbonate platform modelling
