Junge Geomorphologen


Vorstellung der Jungen Geomorphologen der Schweiz

Anlässlich der Jahrestagung der SGmG 2009 in Olivone gegründet, beabsichtigt die Schweizerische Junggeomorphologen Gruppe geomorphologisches Wissen unter jungen Wissenschaftlern (Bachelor, Masterstudierende, Doktoranden), die im Bereich der Geomorphologie oder verwandten Arbeitsgebieten tätig sind, zu fördern, zu verbessern und auszutauschen (Interdisziplinarität).

Das Kommittee ist verantwortlich für das Vernetzen und die Organisation von Aktivitäten für junge Geomorphologen. Der Austausch mit ähnlichen Gruppen in den Alpenländern ist ebenfalls vorgesehen. Die Aktivitäten sind gedacht als formale Diskussionsplattform anlässlich von Exkursionen, wissenschaftlichen Workshops oder sozialen Anlässen. Der letzte Hauptpunkt betrifft das Kennenlernen der Diversität regionalerer Geomorphologie der Schweiz.

The 2016 Young Geomorphologist's activity (1./2.10.2016) took place in the region of Les Diablerets / Sanetsch around the cantonal borders of Bern, Vaud and Vallais. Organized and conducted by Mario Kummert of the physical geography group of the university of Fribourg, eight students and alumni of different parts of switzerland explored a high alpine landscape. After an introduction about the regional geology, the group crossed the Tsanfleuron glacier. During the second day lateglacial glacier retreat and associated dynamic landforms, such as hummocky moraines, dropstones and deposits from an ice-dammed lake at various stops were seen and discussed with the participants. For detailed information and pictures see the attached report.

The Young Geomorphologist's activity 2015 was organized by the Geomorphology and Risk group of the Universty of Berne to the Gelmersee & Triftgebiet (BE) from October 8-9, 2015. They visited the Gelmersee where the were introduced to the geology of the Grimsel region. After an underground visit of the Grimsel reservoir the 15 participants learned more about the current research on debris-flow activies in the Spreitloui near Guttannen. The second day was spent in the Trift region, discussing glacier retreat, geomorphological and geological aspects and in terms of futur hydropower projects in the area, also social and economic topics.

The excursion organized by the Young Geomorphologists to Grindelwald in the framework of the EGEA Western Regional Congress 2014 took place on May 5, 2014. 21 participants from Switzerland and abroad were informed about geomorphological processes, natural hazards and adaption strategies of an alpine community.

The Second Meeting of the Young Swiss Geomorphologists took place from 14 to 16 September 2012 in the region of the project Parc Adula (Ticino/Grisons).


The First Meeting of the Young Swiss Geomorphologists was held from 10 to 12 September 2010 in the region of the Regional Natural Park (NRP) Pfyn-Finges (central Valais). During these 3 days, the integrative tool of land management that is a NRP, regional history, landscape management and natural hazards were discussed with local experts. Field trips focused on the periglacial and glacial forms in the wild Turtmann valley, as well as on the torrential system of Illgraben.
