Multidisciplinary group devoted to investigate the processes that govern the dynamics of recent and present marine sedimentary systems from observational and modeling techniques. We study the causes and effects of natural sedimentary processes in a multidisciplinary approach, investigating the interactions they have with the dynamics of biological, geochemical and physical processes. We analyze their effects on the ecosystem, their interactions with human activities and their implications for environmental management. We also analyze the environmental impact of human activities on sedimentary systems and their consequences for society. The main themes of our current research are the morphodynamic evolution and the erosion, transport and record of sedimentary material in relation to the current dynamic processes, anthropogenic activities and their recent evolution as a reference to help improve the knowledge of global changes.
