Scope The terrestrial earth surface is the habitat of humans and undergoes drastic changes caused by endogenic and exogenic processes. Establishing the chronology of the past changes/episodes is a key to understanding ongoing processes and to predict future physical environments. This session aims at comprehensive understanding of dynamics of the earth's surface, including crustal movements, uplift-denudation processes, and subsequent landform development occurred in various spatio-temporal scales. In addition to the thermochronological approach, it welcomes interdisciplinary studies based on, e.g., tectonic geomorphology, structural geology, geodetic observation, cosmogenic nuclides, numerical calculations, and analogue experiments, including their industrial applications.
