Timescales of Sediment Dynamics, Climate and Topographic Change in Mountain Environments (SedyMONT)

Understanding the timescales and controls of sediment dynamics are a prerequisite if we aim to predict the landscape response to changes in temperature, precipitation and runoff. This requires identification of sediment sources and sinks and the mechanisms and rates of sediment transfer at sites in different environments. In SedyMONT we will address this topic on the basis of

  1. historical records and field monitoring,
  2. morphometric and geologic histories,
  3. a conceptual modelling framework, and
  4. information on past and present climate variability and scenarios of future climate change.

We will collect data about sediment discharge and landscape changes for a variety of settings within Europe.
