Mismanaged plastic waste (MPW) entering the riverine environment is concerning, given that most plastic pollution never reaches the oceans, and it has a severe negative impact on terrestrial ecosystems. However, significant knowledge gaps on the storage and remobilization of MPW within different rivers over varying timescales remain. Here we analyz...

Active learning in education has been shown to improve a students’ learning experience in higher education by focusing on a student-centered learning environment; however, development of realistic activities that replicate the complexity of real-world examples without being too complex for the novice learner is often challenging. Here we present SE...

The long-term development of ancient and modern coastal distributary fluvial systems (DFSs) during periods of relative sea-level highstand or fall usually drive net-progradation of shorelines, though such deposits usually also record annual to millennial-scale deviations in coastal trajectories. A new continental dataset (Digital Earth Australia Co...

Full-text available
The morphology of a river and its channel belt is in part the product of ecological, hydrological and tectonic processes shaping the terrestrial landscape. River morphology is critical for understanding their physical evolution through time, and in predicting the future behavior of rivers and floods. To date, there is no global-scale, quantitative...
Article
Full-text available
A new data layer provides Coastal and Marine Ecological Classification Standard (CMECS) labels for global coastal segments at 1 km or shorter resolution. These characteristics are summarized for six US Marine Biodiversity Observation Network (MBON) sites and one MBON Pole to Pole of the Americas site in Argentina. The global coastlines CMECS classi...
Article
Full-text available
Constraining the timing and volume of sediment dispersal in an ancient sedimentary system is vital to understand a basin’s infill history. One preferred method for a first‐order approximation of ancient sediment load estimates, the BQART model, is based on empirical observations of modern river systems relating basin morphology, topography, climate...
Article
Marine litter is a global problem which poses an increasing threat to, ecosystem services, human health, safety and sustainable livelihoods. In order to better plan plastic pollution monitoring and clean-up activities, and to develop policies and programmes to deter and mitigate plastic pollution, information is urgently needed on the different typ...
Article
Full-text available
Delta plains host heavily populated and extensive agricultural areas with strong anthropo-genic overprints on the natural evolution of these important landforms. Furthermore, modern delta plains have formed over a short geological time frame, representing immature end members to ancient counterparts in Earth's history-it could thus be argued that t...
Preprint
Outcrops and modern depositional environments are important analogues for subsurface hydrocarbon-, water- or CO2-sequestration reservoirs, as they supplement limited well- and seismic- data and provide information on connectivity of sandbodies observed in subsurface datasets. Object based modelling is one of a series of methods that is widely used...
Article
Full-text available
A new 30-m spatial resolution global shoreline vector (GSV) was developed from annual composites of 2014 Landsat satellite imagery. The semi-automated classification of the imagery was accomplished by manual selection of training points representing water and non-water classes along the entire global coastline. Polygon topology was applied to the G...
Article
Full-text available
Catchments provide water and sediment to downstream sedimentary systems, and these form individual source-to-sink systems. Source-to-sink systems comprise adjacent linked segments, commonly hinterland catchments, alluvial- and coastal plains, the continental shelf, continental slope and submarine fan. The dimensions of the catchment and how it scal...
Article
Full-text available
Fractures rarely occur individually but more usually as networks of numerous fractures whose arrangement, abundance, and interaction control the mechanical and transport properties of rock masses. Of particular importance are the distributions and spatial variations of different geometric (locations, orientation, length, etc.) and topological (inte...
Article
Full-text available
Empirical observations used to constrain controls on large global modern river systems typically use catchment delineations depicting drainage patterns of rivers to oceans. A key component in the spatial and temporal discharge of sediment to oceans are terrestrial sinks that act as buffers and sequestrate sediment and nutrients along its route, how...
Article
Full-text available
Deposits of marginal marine depositional systems make up significant hydrocarbon reservoirs in the rock record. These systems are deposited by a complex interaction between competing depositional processes which can result in heterogeneous and compartmentalized reservoirs. Shallow marine systems are described using a ternary classification describi...

Article
Full-text available
The stratigraphic record is heavily biased because it is uniquely composed of sediments that were laid down in basins, whereas the majority of the present and historic land surface of the planet is composed of areas that are in net long-term erosion with no preservation potential. Global mapping and quantification of the distribution of currently a...

Full-text available
The recent rise in the quality and availability of remote sensing data has benefitted the geoscience community by allowing high resolution studies of the geometry of modern clastic depositional elements, which are analogous to the elements that control fluid flow in subsurface reservoirs. Established methods used to describe the geometry of these f...
