Quantifying landscape evolution during the Plio- and Pleistocene
Convenors: Zsófia Ruszkiczay-Rüdiger, Stephanie Neuhuber, Christopher Lüthgens, Jürgen Reitner, Bernhard Salcher

Pliocene to Quaternary environmental changes were governed by severe climate oscillations and tectonic deformation. A quantification of the effects of these processes is essential for a better understanding of landscape evolution. This session offers an interdisciplinary platform for studies applying different geochronometers to determine the timing, duration, and intensity of surface and or tectonic processes. We encourage studies addressing age determination of fluvial, eolian or glacial sediments, and those who are converting dates to rates by quantifying rates of surface denudation, sediment accumulation, river incision, rock uplift. Contributions that combine different approaches are especially welcome.
