CONCEPT NOTE

Geomorphology has become one of the important subjects that provides a basis for natural hazard and environmental studies. The popularity of geomorphology has increased because of its application in different disciplines and the scientific nature of geomorphological studies, methodology, and applications. Geomorphology forms the basis of the environment and it is considered an important part of environmental and hazard assessment. Modern studies in geomorphology are application-based and enhanced with geospatial databases and techniques. Modern geomorphology is equipped with high-resolution databases such as DEM and scanning systems like LIDAR. Today, we are in the era of application of artificial intelligence, and cloud computing in geomorphic studies wherein automatic feature identification and morphometric analysis, simulation of the geomorphic process in different and changing environmental conditions, and their response and prediction is possible.

The studies in Planetary Geomorphology, Anthropogeomorphology, Environmental Geomorphology, Geomorphic Impact Assessment (GIA), Geodesign, Geospatial modeling, Computer simulations, and Process response modeling will develop geomorphology as an important subject. Geomorphology will play important role in the analysis of carbon fluxes, and carbon credit estimations in the tropical and subtropical climatic regions of the world. Geomorphology is an active interface between the lithosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere therefore it is going to play a predominant role in climate change studies.

Geomorphology plays an important role in resolving different challenges such as the identification of impacts of sea-level change, climate change, different human activities, and large development projects. It is also important to apply geomorphic knowledge to understand the geomorphic impact assessment and geotechnical aspects of large projects. Human intervention, land surface alteration, and altered geomorphic processes will be the key areas of research. Geomorphologists have to strengthen the research towards the GIA for environmental conservation, Geodesign in carbon credit claims, and carbon and water footprints. Geomorphic restoration is a challenging field of geomorphic research and application toward the conservation of land surface, water quality, and ultimately well-being of mankind. There are different approaches through which geomorphological studies will be done in the areas such as effects on the Earth system. Considering the futuristic approaches in geomorphic studies the themes of the present conference are premeditated.

ABOUT US

SAVITRIBAI PHULE PUNE UNIVERSITY (SPPU)

Established on 10th February 1949 under the Poona University Act as the University of Poona and now known as Savitribai Phule Pune University, the university has become one of the leading centres for research and teaching in India where students peruse research in various disciplines of Science, Humanities and Social Science. The University houses about 61 departments/centres, 234 recognized research institutes and 900 affiliated colleges offering a wide array of graduate and under- graduate courses. The university has also been ranked 2nd in India as per the Times higher education world university ranking in the year 2019 and was also re-accredited by NAAC at “A+” level, Status of the university for potential for excellence by UGC, Delhi.

DEPARTMENT OF GEOGRAPHY

The Department of Geography, Savitribai Phule Pune University was established in 1950. It is one of the few leading departments in India with strong Physical as well as Human Geography working groups. The department has received special grants from ISRO, ICSSR and UGC and also had been recognized as a FIST sponsored department by DST, New Delhi. The department provides advanced education in geography through academic programmes leading to the degrees in — M.A. and M.Sc. in Geography, M. Sc. in Geoinformatics, P. G. B. Sc. (Applied) in GIS and Remote Sensing and Ph. D. in Geography. Recently Centre for South Asian Studies (CSAS) has been established in the Department. We also offer short term courses in RS and GIS, advanced surveying and tourism.

THE INDIAN INSTITUTE OF GEOMORPHOLOGISTS (IGI)

Indian Institute of Geomorphologists (IGI) is the national platform exclusively dedicated to research and development in the field of geomorphology in India. The idea of forming the Indian Institute of Geomorphologists (IGI) was seeded at the International Conference of Geomorphology and Environment held at the University of Allahabad in 1987. Now affiliated with the International Association of Geomorphologists, the primary objectives of the IGI are: to bring all Indian earth scientists dealing with geomorphology and allied disciplines on a common platform; to hold annual conferences in different parts of the country; to publish a research journal; to encourage young scholars in doing research in geomorphology; and to give emphasis on researches related to human society and its welfare viz. environmental geomorphology, urban geomorphology, environmental hazards, and their management on different spatial and temporal scales.
