Division of Geology KU Leuven

The researchers from the Department of Geology concentrate on the study of Planet Earth. In particular we study the geosphere – the ‘solid’ Earth – and try to figure out the significance of processes in the geosphere with respect to the functioning of Earth’s systems from global to local scale. In our research we look into ‘deep time’, but always in the perspective of the challenges our society faces today and in the future. Besides the ...

Ecosystem Management University of Antwerp

The research concentrates on the ecology of aquatic ecosystems and wetlands and the processes in the land-water interaction along the whole river continuum and the river-coastal sea interaction. The studied systems vary from small streams with riparian margins over larger rivers and floodplains to estuaries. These studies, both descriptive and experimental in nature, are integrated to predict the impact of different management options on the ...
