British Society for Geomorphology
The British Society for Geomorphology (BSG) aims to bring together the community of Geomorphology researchers and educators in order to promote the subject. Formerly the British Geomorphological Research Group (BGRG), the Society was founded in 1960 and has over 600 members worldwide.
Geomorphology is the study of landforms, their processes, form and sediments at a planetary surface (usually Earth). We study landscapes to work out how the earth-surface processes, such as air, water and ice, can mould the landscape. Landforms are produced by erosion or deposition, as rock and sediment is worn away by these earth-surface processes and transported and deposited to different localities.
