Laboratory of Seafloor and Subseafloor Geological Processes

Understanding Earth processes to manage geohazards, georesources and the environment

The Laboratory of Seafloor and Subseafloor Geological Processes (LS3GP) carries out multidisciplinary research embracing all contemporary physical processes that occur at or beneath the seafloor, including the anthropic influence on these processes, and those that occurred in the geological past.

The LS3GP has ample experience in

1.- marine field data acquisition,

2.- laboratory and numerical methods and

3.- data interpretation.

A strong emphasis is brought on offshore geohazards and marine sedimentology.
