Big Geomorphology Webinar Series

Normally we would be preparing for the next biennial conference, but with COVID-19 this has been delayed to 2021. To keep the ANZGG spirit alive, we have organised a series of online webinars that cover advances in big themes and ideas in geomorphology. You will get an introduction to the latest research and ideas from leading researchers and practitioners. The idea is that each topic will appeal to both Australians and New Zealanders, as well as to people who generally love the landscape as much as we do.
