Slovensko geološko društvo in Slovenski nacionalni odbor INQUA (SINQUA) vas vabita na predavanje Dr.Giovannija Monegata z Inštituta za geoznanosti in zemeljske vire italijanskega Nacionalnega raziskovalnega sveta z naslovom "An updated overview of last glacial maximum on the southern side of the Alps: comparisons and climate considerations".

Dr. Giovanni Monegato studied Geology and Geomorphology at the University of Padova where he obtained his Ph.D. in 2007. He worked from 1998 to 2007 on the new Italian Geological Map Project in Friuli Region. Since 2011 he is a researcher at the Institute of Geosciences and Earth Resources of the National Research Council. His main fields of interest are sedimentary geology of continental successions, regional geology and Quaternary geology. He works mainly on the glacial and alluvial Quaternary successions of the Southern side of the Alps. In the field of sedimentary geology he works on facies analysis, provenance analysis and stratigraphy of Tortonian-Quaternary successions of the Venetian-Friulian Basin and in the Piedmont Basin. He also worked, as visiting scholarship on the Navajo Sandstones of the Colorado Plateau (Southwest USA). His scientific work is documented in more than 65 publications in international journals and in popular scientific contributions.

Slovensko geološko društvo vas vabi na predavanje prof. dr. Bálazsa Székelyja z Univerze Eötvös Loránd v Budimpešti z naslovom "Attempts to integrate David with Goliath: lessons learnt on differential uplift in a flatland".

Povzetek predavanja:
To study differential uplift in orogens became almost a commonplace in earth science in the last decades. In the last quarter of the 20th century various geochronological techniques delivered evidence for rates of exhumation.  Differential uplift rates reaching 1 mm/year in orogens can be detected and maps can be drawn even for the youngest processes as our understanding increased e.g. in separation of rock uplift and surface uplift. Much of previously neglected knowledge in geomorphology had been brushed up ready to be integrated in an increasingly dynamic model of surface evolution.
