  • Opinion: Geologists unveil how Britain first separated from Europe - and it was catastrophic

    As Brexit looms, Earth scientists have uncovered evidence of Britain’s original split from mainland Europe. Almost half a million years ago, according to new data, water suddenly started cascading over the narrow strip of land that joined England and France – putting pressure on a chalk bridge. Researchers show that, as a result, this ridge – a natural dam that separated the ...

  • Gully and rill erosion: recent research progress (co-organized)

    Soil erosion has been divided traditionally into sheet, rill, and gully erosion. In rills and gullies, overland flow is concentrated, which markedly increases the erosivity of the flow, and can cause then significant incisions into the landscape. Usually rills occur on sloping surfaces, whereas gullies occur within swales or hollows. Concentrated flow erosion represents an important -if not the ...
