Historically, large (scientific scope, geographical area, operational budget, number of participants etc) geoscience programs or expeditions such as IODP, ICDP, MARGINS, or e.g., the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau Expedition incrementally advances, or sometimes revolutionizes the world’s understanding of Earth Sciences in general and that of sedimentology in particular. In addition to large budgets and brilliant minds involved in these programs, the use of creative and new technologies is one of the critical factors that propel breakthroughs and discoveries. As suggested by the above title, this theme invite session proposals that: (1) focus on a specific geoscience program from all corners of the world that investigates a variety of sedimentological issues including, but not limited to, fluvial, lacustrine, marine sedimentological processes and deposits (modern or ancient); and/or (2) showcase technological breakthroughs (e.g., sampling devices, analyzing methods, numerical modeling and schemes, etc.) that advance sedimentological research both qualitatively and quantitatively.
