Malta Geomorphology Group

A geomorphological research group is going to be set up with the aim of promoting geomorphology as an academic discipline and recognise geomorphological research which is being undertaken within a local context.   There will be the opportunity to bring together academics, professionals, graduate and undergraduate students who are interested in geomorphology and other related earth sciences, such as geology, engineering geology, pedology and hydrology.  It is planned that in the future the group will organise events such as seminars, workshops and conferences to further disseminate geomorphological knowledge.

The group will be approved as a National Scientific Member of the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG).  The IAG is a scientific, non-governmental and non-profit organisation, whose principal objectives are development and promotion of geomorphology as a science through international co-operation and dissemination of knowledge of geomorphology. Membership of the IAG is normally by countries. At present, 58 countries are affiliated to the IAG through their National Scientific Members. Further information on IAG can found at the following website:
