"Mitigate or migrate?": Marsh loss and sea level around Chesapeake Bay
Ben DeJong
The Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge (BNWR) on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, USA is a major destination for bird-watchers worldwide. Set aside as a refuge in 1938, BNWR (Fig 1) is part of a one of the largest ...

Human-Induced Floodplain Sedimentation in the Driftless Area of southwestern Wisconsin: Consequences on Riparian Ecosystems
Eric Booth
The Driftless Area of southwestern Wisconsin (Figure 1) is a unique region in the Upper Midwest, USA, because it escaped the direct effects of continental glaciation. In contrast, surrounding areas have been ...

Rock glaciers: their ice and debris balances
Brian Whalley
Rock glaciers are best defined by their topography (Fig. 1) and that they flow slowly. Their dynamic character is attributed to the flow of ice deforming the associated weathered rock debris. Typically, they flow ...

Volcanic History and Cinder Cone Erosion at Newberry Volcano, Oregon
Steve Taylor
Surface landforms result from a balance of constructional and erosional processes operating at geological time scales of 102 to 105 years. The landscape evolves over time as masses of earth material are transferred ...

Geomorphic history controls the locations of fresh-water wetlands on barrier islands, Virginia's Atlantic shore
Rich Whittecar, Old Dominion University
Fresh-water ponds on low sand islands Native Americans, pirates and the early European colonists used them. Ship-wreaked sailors owe their survival to them. Fresh-water ponds somehow seem out of place, though, ...

Challenges associated with investigations into the geomorphology of other worlds: A case study examining glacier-like forms in the mid-latitudes of Mars
Colin Souness
Ever since global imagery of Mars was first gathered and transmitted back to Earth in 1971 by the Mariner 9 orbiter, geomorphologists have remarked upon the abundance of landforms which seem to suggest the action ...
