Multiproxy study of imprints of climate change and extreme events in the geological record
To document and enhance our understanding of long- term causes, frequency, size and impact of climate change and extreme events on local and regional scales.
Identifying, mapping and monitoring signatures of historical and present-day natural hazards
To document and enhance our understanding of short-term causes, frequency, size and impact of natural and human-induced hazards on the natural environment and infrastructure on local and regional scales (e.g., impact of climate change on coastal vulnerability, impact of anthropogenic activities on ground deformation/landslides).
Modelling and predicting causes and consequences of natural hazards
To model ground deformations or natural hazards based on satellite and ground data acquisition to forecast and predict their future implications with a special focus on growing urbanized areas
