27 June 2024 - GSA-VIC Howitt Lecture

Details: Australian Desert Rivers: So Cool, So Dry, So Dynamic with Dr Gresley Wakelin-King, Fellow, Geological Society of Australia.
Abstract: Australia’s drylands rivers are qualitatively different from temperate-zone perennial rivers. Aridity creates special conditions for rainfall, run-off, vegetation-landform relationships and biotic life cycles, while the Australian geological context gives our drylands that characteristic look and feel. We’ll look at some iconic landscapes while exploring the importance of geomorphology to sustainable land management.
