Coastal Processes & Marine Geology (LPCGM)


LPCGM research focuses on coastal and deep-sea geological structures and processes, mineral and energy resources, marine geological hazards and seismic oceanography. Major research topics include: the lithospheric structure, rifting processes and evolution of continental margins; mud volcanism and hydrocarbon-rich fluid seepage; marine mineral resources; conventional and non-conventional hydrocarbons, in particular shallow gas and gas hydrates; deep sea active geological structures with potential high seismic risk; underwater acoustics; sedimentary processes, coastal erosion and shoreline retreat; observations and modelling of gravity waves; sediment transport; morphodynamics of beaches and tidal inlets; retrieving of morphological and hydrodynamic parameters from video and satellite imagery.
