Geomorphologists play a key role in many professional spheres, such as in the water industry, environmental and engineering consultants, and national and local government. It is vital that geomorphologists in academia are informed by those applying the discipline to the real world, and that practitioners maintain links with research geomorphologists and our growing postgraduate membership; many of whom may go on to be practitioners of geomorphology themselves.   

The BSG Committee for Professional Geomorphology aims to lead, support and improve the discipline of applied professional geomorphology. We aim to:

  1. Provide a forum for professional applied geomorphologists to share current issues and hot topics, support academic research and share knowledge
  2. Grow the influence of geomorphology, communicating its benefits and strengthening links with other organisations
  3. Encourage and support high professional standards and behaviours 
  4. Support geomorphology as a career by encouraging new geomorphologists and helping people develop professionally
  5. Connect professional applied geomorphologists by organising meetings, workshops and events to share good practice and to support each other.

Committee members are:

  • Chair - Richard Jeffries (Environment Agency)
  • Secretary - Katy Kemble (Jacobs)
  • Representative for consultancy - Suzie Maas (Atkins)
  • Representative for academia - Pete Downs (Plymouth)
  • Representative for Regulators - Jo Shanahan (Environment Agency)
  • Representatives for postgraduate community: Eleonore Heasley and Eilidh Stott.
