My research focuses on the Holocene natural and human-influenced evolution of deltas over time scales ranging from 10 to 106 years.
The general aims are:
An important aspect of the overall aim is to investigate the evolution of the Rhine-Meuse delta over various time scales from the Tertiary to the present. The Rhine-Meuse delta and the database obtained from this delta forms a unique dataset enabling to study generic characteristics and controls in the evolution of deltas world-wide.
I am co-leader of the Water, Climate & Future Deltas Community within the UU strategic theme Pathways to Sustainability.
