Our special volumes
The WGSG aims at publishing the results of forefront research focussing on sediment generation, sediment routing systems, tectonics and sedimentation, erosion-transport-sorting, sedimentary processes, depositional controls on diagenesis, and compositional data analysis. Our special volumes normally follow the WGSG meetings which happen every two years.

Edited by Hilmar von Eynatten, Salvatore Critelli, Raymond V. Ingersoll, Gert Jan Weltje (Sedimentary Geology, Volume 280, Pages 1-270).
Our first publication, dedicated to problems and solutions related to sediment provenance sensu strictu and (i) summarises the state-of-the-art in several fields related to sediment-generation models, (ii) focuses on quantitative aspects of major intrinsic problems in sediment generation, such as sediment mixing or grain-size control on sediment composition, (iii) covers new aspects and data-acquisition techniques, and (iv) includes well elaborated examples of case studies related to sediment budget and provenance topics.

SEDIMENT GENERATION AND SEDIMENT ROUTING SYSTEMS
Edited by Luca Caracciolo, David Chew and Sergio Andò (Earth Science Reviews)
In this special issue (‘Sediment generation and Sediment routing systems’), we particularly encourage contributions focussing on how external forcing controls sediment generation, and the factors governing sediment grain-size partitioning and trajectories and their distribution within a sedimentary system. We particularly encourage contributions focussing on Numerical Landscape Modelling, Mass Balance – Sediment Budget – Erosion rates, Chemical and Mechanical Weathering, Transport dynamics (partitioning and sorting) and Depositional controls on Early diagenesis. We also welcome contributions highlighting technological advances and/or applications to sediment mineralogical and compositional analyses. While regional case studies are welcome, in such contributions authors are encouraged to emphasize the broad significance of their work.
