Multidisciplinary group devoted to investigate the processes that govern the dynamics of the current and recent marine sedimentary systems using observational and modelling techniques. We address the causes and effects of natural sedimentary processes and anthropic actions in the marine environment through a multidisciplinary approach, investigating the interactions they have with biological, geochemical and physical processes. We analyze their effects on the ecosystem, their implications for the management of the marine environment and natural resources and their consequences for society. The main topics of our current research cover the morphodynamic evolution of the coast and the continental margins, and the processes of sediment erosion, transport and accumulation, both those current and those that have generated the recent sedimentary record, to contribute to improve the scientific knowledge of current global changes in marine ecosystems and their future evolution.
