Geomorphology

Internal description

Geomorphology is the study of landscapes on the Earth and elsewhere in the solar system, allowing us to understand the processes that shape and transform the world and planets around us. Our research focuses on the links between climate change and tectonics, and the history of planetary surfaces and water flow.

Description

Geomorphology is the study of the shape of Earth's surface and of the processes that have shaped it. Our work extends from studying how sediment is released from erosion on land and delivered offshore, to information on surface runnoff on Mars provided by its channel networks, to submarine geomorphology (everywhere from abyssal depths to coastal seas). We work with traditional datasets (digital elevation models) as well as submarine geomorphological data from multibeam sonars and surfaces extracted from petroleum industry 3D seismic datasets.
