The 29th IAS Meeting of Sedimentology will bring together all facets of sedimentology under the theme Sedimentology in the Heart of the Alps. It will feature a wide ranging interdisciplinary scientific programme, an exciting range of Pre- and Post-Meeting Field Trips, which are being organised with important contributions from our Austrian partners and inputs from our Slovenian, Croatian, Hungarian and Slovakian neighbours. Expert training Pre- and Post-Meeting Short Courses, an exhibition and leisure options will be other features.
One of the most attractive points of the 29th IAS Meeting will be the possibility to join several of the geological field trips. The region surrounding Schladming encloses a wide spectrum of sedimentary rocks, superbly exposed in the outcrops of the Eastern Alps. For example, the Northern Calcareous Alps are the type area for numerous classical Mesozoic sites including GSSPs. Also, there will be a variety of trips that examine famous outcrops of Palaeozoic and Cenozoic sedimentary rocks in the Eastern Alps and sedimentary ore deposits. Other field trips will be held in the mountain chains of the Southern Alps, the Carpathians, the Dinarides and the Pannonian Basin.
