Research is mainly focussing on hydrogeomorphological processes at various scales from
small catchments in Northern France (50-150 ha) to large river basins (Upper Blue Nile)
in relationship to land use and cover, land management and climate variability.
Long-term (Late-Holocene), Medium-term (<200 years) and present-day dynamics are studied using various methodologies.
Furthermore, the research group is also involved in geoarcheological investigations in Egypt, Iran,
and the study of permafrost in Switzerland and development projects in Ethiopia.
