BSRG conference

posted in: News | 0

In December we represented PROMS at the BSRG (British Sedimentology Research Group) conference in Edinburgh. Our presentation on sediment distributions in delta deposits and our poster on modelling of 3D turbidity currents in Delft3D was well received, and lead to interesting discussions and new collaboration opportunities to follow up on. We also thoroughly enjoyed the workshop on contourites by Dorrik Stow and Zeinab Smilie which gave a good overview of the existing and state of the art research on the topic. We definitely hope to attend again next year! Helena and Maria.
