Geomorphic Processes Short Course

May 8 - May 9

Date:  May 8 8am – 12pm and May 9 8am to 1pm

Event Format:  Two morning classroom style sessions

Location:  Park Town Hotel, 924 Spadina Crescent E, Saskatoon, SK, S7K 3H5

Hosting Organization:  Saskatoon Geotechnical Group

Event Summary:  The course begins with reviews of geomorphic processes that have most influenced the landscapes of Canada; topics like periglacial climate, ice physics and glacier flow, glacier hydrology, glaciations of Canada, glacial deposition, meltwater flow and meltwater deposition. These explain the array of sediment types and attendant stratigraphy and sedimentology of soils across Canada.

The process review blends-in an array of case histories. Examples are drawn from the mining, pipeline, and civil / municipal sectors. They illustrate the breadth of process understanding needed to build geo-models suitable for geotechnical engineering design purposes.
