Geodiversity in Belgium and around: Inventory of Geosites & Methodology
Develop methodology to inventory and assess geodiversity in specific environments (e.g., coastal lowlands, rivers, caves, cemeteries, cliffs …) and apply mapping techniques for geoconservation (e.g., drone campaigns, LIDAR, geophysical/geochemical).
Geodiversity within RBINS geology collections: Inventory & Methodology
Application of new analytical techniques to valorize RBINS geology collection as geodiversity treasures of the subsoil (thin sections, cores, Antarcticmeteorites, natural building stones, etc.).
Linking Geodiversity and biodiversity
Develop interdisciplinary methodology and application of mapping/monitoring techniques to enhance our knowledge on the interaction between biodiversity and geodiversity, to secure their interlinked preservation on the long-term.
