10th International congress of Tidal Sedimentology

Begins : Tuesday, May 3, 2022 at 2:00 AM

Ends : Friday, May 6, 2022 at 2:00 AM

Duration : 3 days

10th INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS of

TIDAL SEDIMENTOLOGY

improving energy recovery, protecting environment, predicting climate changes
Matera, Italy, 3-5 May 2022
Auditorium "R. Gervasio" of Matera
The 10th edition of the international Congress of Tidal Sedimentology will be held in Matera (Basilicata, southern Italy) from May 3rd to 5th 2022.

The TIDALITES conference is a recurrent event from about forty years, repeated approximately every four years in different countries of the world and attracting participants from many universities, research centers and industries. TIDALITES 2022 has the ambitious goal of drawing the attention of the local and international scientific community to three fundamental aspects: ENERGY The study of ancient tidal systems preserved in outcrop and subsurface is crucial for the optimization of the exploitation of natural resources, such as water, oil and natural gas, as well as for the use of these same reservoirs for Carbon Capture and Storage. Additionally, understanding the sedimentary dynamics in marine areas naturally designated for the exploitation of tidal power is essential for risk reduction and implementation of renewable energy production techniques. ENVIRONMENT The protection of the current coastal environment is strongly threatened by a combination of natural phenomena, such as coastal erosion, and the pressure deriving from anthropogenic activities. Scientific research on the sedimentary dynamics of coastal environments becomes strategic for a correct and sustainable territorial planning and use of littoral areas. CLIMATE The ongoing climate changes are rapidly altering the oceanographic setting of coastal areas, so that the predictability of tidal processes and their impact on the coasts is one of the new challenges for many countries. The study of the effects of these changes on modern tidal systems and the possible technical solutions represent another breakthrough research topic for the near future. TIDALITES wants to draw the attention of technical researchers, promotion agencies, industries and potential partners, who may benefit from the scientific knowledge that tidal scientists all over the world are achieving, turning them into advantages for the world community. The conference will take place in the hypogean auditorium R. Gervasio, very close to the heart of the amazing ancient city of Matera, in southern Italy. During the three days of meeting, oral and poster contributions will be presented within thematic sessions, opened by selected keynotes aiming at promoting lively discussions among the scientific community. As usual, 2-3-days-long field trips precede and follow the conference. They give the opportunity to visit modern tidal environments along some of the coasts of the peninsula, as well as to discover some of the best-exposed tidalite-bearing outcrop successions of Italy and outside of Italy. Registration to the congress is available at www.tidalites2022.it. 

Deadline for abstract submission is on March 30th 2022. 

Travel grants for students are offered by SEPM. Details and instruction to apply are in the website.

ENVIRONMENT

The protection of the current coastal environment is strongly threatened by a combination of natural phenomena, such as coastal erosion, and the pressure deriving from anthropogenic activities. Scientific research on the sedimentary dynamics of coastal environments becomes strategic for a correct and sustainable territorial planning and use of littoral areas.

CLIMATE

The ongoing climate changes are rapidly altering the oceanographic setting of coastal areas, so that the predictability of tidal processes and their impact on the coasts is one of the new challenges for many countries. The study of the effects of these changes on modern tidal systems and the possible technical solutions represent another breakthrough research topic for the near future.

TIDALITES wants to draw the attention of technical researchers, promotion agencies, industries and potential partners, who may benefit from the scientific knowledge that tidal scientists all over the world are achieving, turning them into advantages for the world community.

The conference will take place in the auditorium ‘R. Gervasio’, a hypogean theatre carved in the stone and located in the heart of the amazing ancient city of Matera, in the sunny southern Italy. During the three days of meeting, oral and poster contributions will be presented within thematic sessions, promoting lively discussions among the scientific community.

As usual, 2-3-days-long field trips will precede and follow the conference. They will give the opportunity to visit modern tidal environments along some of the coasts of the peninsula, as well as to discover some of the best-exposed tidalite-bearing outcrop successions of Italy and outside of Italy.
