Who is this community? 

The SEPM Fluvial Sedimentology Research Group is made up of SEPM members interested in the processes and deposits of modern and ancient rivers. This Research Group was newly formed in 2023 to foster networking and collaboration among scientists interested in this field. We welcome geologists, geomorphologists, archeologists, engineers, and anyone interested in rivers and their deposits. Our interests span process sedimentology, remote sensing, modeling and experimentation, subsurface interpretation and fluid flow, river–ecosystem interactions and more.
