Workshop Location and Dates

We are happy to announce the 7th International Planetary Dunes workshop scheduled for May 17–20, 2022, at Adams State University, 210 Edgemont Blvd., Alamosa, Colorado, 81101.

This workshop is planned as an in-person workshop. The organizers are monitoring the current COVID-19 situation, and the workshop format will be adjusted as necessary.

Purpose and Scope

The purpose of this workshop is to provide a forum for discussion and exchange of new ideas and approaches to the investigation of aeolian processes that form and maintain dune fields on Earth, underwater, and on other planetary bodies within the solar system.

The objectives of the proposed Planetary Dunes workshop, which follows on previous workshops with growing attendance over the past decade, include:

  • Bringing together terrestrial and planetary aeolian scientists from a range of specialties (e.g., remote sensing, field study, computer modeling, and laboratory experimentation)
  • Discussing and exploring the observations and theories of dunes and dune formation throughout the solar system
  • Creating a research synergy between terrestrial analog studies, remote sensing, computer simulations, and laboratory experiments
  • Exposing and expanding undergraduate and graduate students' understanding of planetary aeolian processes
  • Determining high-priority science that can only be achieved with in situ measurements
  • Developing a Goals, Objectives, and Investigations document for the planetary aeolian community. See our starting draft.
