Geomorphologists now play a key role in many professional spheres, such as in the water industry, environmental and engineering consultants, and national and local government.

The purpose of the BSG Committee for Professional Geomorphology is to lead, support and improve the discipline of applied professional geomorphology. 

We aim to link researchers with practitioners so that the latest geomorphological science is applied to help currrent issues. The committee is creating a friendly professional network of geomorphologists to share technical knowledge and experiences, and to help people develop their career in this fascinating and essential discipline. Whether you're a researcher, undergrad or postgrad, consultant or regulatory geomorphologist, we'd like to help you. 

Our aims are 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.
