We will be meeting on Thursday evenings from pm.
Denudation processes and landforms map of the Camastra River catchment (Basilicata – South Italy)
Location TBD each week. Cambridge University Press, The Earth's near surface environment has been termed the "critical zone" as this is the zone that supports most life and because the Earth's surface is the dynamic interface where much of the geologic record is produced. We now know that we face rapid climate change and the consequences of changes in landuse, water resources, and ecosystems.
But how will changes to the environment manifest themselves in the critical zone - in the form and function of the Earth's surface landforms, water resources, soils, natural hazards, ecosystems - and how will these changes impact us? Critical to planning a response to, or mitigation of, environmental change is an understanding how the Earth surface works - the interaction of physical, chemical and biotic processes in shaping the surface and determining fluid, solute and sediment fluxes.
This course offers a quantitative introduction to the form and function of the Earth's surface including the essentials of hydrology runoff, groundwater , rivers, weathering, soil formation, erosion, slope stability, sediment transport, alluvial and coastal landforms, and ice sheet stability. This project-based course includes GIS analysis, interpretation of remotely sensed imagery, and field investigation 2 weekend trips of geomorphic phenomena.
Lessons learned are directly applicable to investigations of other planetary surfaces. Taught primarily for upper division undergraduates, but open to graduate students interested in a quantitative but introductory class in surface processes and landform evolution. Expectations will differ for graduate students. Surface processes e. In addition, the study of surface processes is essential to understanding natural and environmental hazards in the landscape.

The course offers a quantitative introduction to mechanics of fluvial, hillslope, and glacial processes, with emphasis on long-term landscape evolution. Essentials of weathering, soil formation, runoff, erosion, slope stability, sediment transport, river incision, and glacial erosion. System responses to climatic and tectonic forcings, including: glaciation, sea level change, uplift, subsidence, and isostatic rebound.
The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 green comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 yellow the second highest values, Q3 orange the third highest values and Q4 red the lowest values. The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.
This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year.
Evolution of the total number of citations and journal's self-citations received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. Journal Self-citation is defined as the number of citation from a journal citing article to articles published by the same journal.phon-er.com/js/ios/download-windows-8-theme-for.php

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document i. International Collaboration accounts for the articles that have been produced by researchers from several countries. The chart shows the ratio of a journal's documents signed by researchers from more than one country; that is including more than one country address.
