Rivers, deltas and coastal areas

We study present and past fluvial, coastal, and deltaic morphodynamics at various spatio-temporal scales.

  • Studies on the evolution of coastal, fluvial and wetland landscapes and environments in the face of sea level rise, sedimentary dynamics, climate change, and human occupation since the Quaternary.
  • Measurements of the impact of storms on natural environments in order to identify trends and that are useful for predicting future changes
  • Understanding sedimenta transfers that control the large-scale morphodynamics of rivers, beaches, mangroves and deltas.
  • Reconstructing past landscapes to understand human-landscape relationships during the Quaternary
