Coastal geomorphology and links with ecological processes

Geomorphological mapping to support an ecological study by Gatti et al., 2015

Geomorphological mapping to support an ecological study by Gatti et al., 2015

We collaborate with marine ecologists and biologists in studies where it is necessary to merge the knowledge on ecological processes with that on geomorphological processes. In this research topic, we also use our GIS instruments and expertise to support ecological analyses.

Research questions addressed in this topic are extremely diverse and interdisciplinary.
