A new speleothem record from the tropical Cerrado of Brazil (Angelica cave) is being processed for paleoclimatic reconstructions.
Large Rivers: long term basin evolution, morphodynamics and global change, with focus on SE Asia - Edgardo Latrubesse
Led by Professor Edgardo Latrubesse, who has worked on many of the largest rivers in the world, the team’s research focus includes Quaternary, geomorphology, hydrology of large rivers, impacts of human activities on large fluvial systems and tropical biomes, paleogeography of large rivers and plains, and hydro-geo-scientific contributions to multidisciplinary environmental research and global change.
South Atlantic Convergence Zone behavior over the mid to late-Holocene inferred from speleothem records
We aim to quantify current and potential environmental impacts of dams on river basins in Southeast Asia, with a focus on Indonesia (Java and Sumatra), one of the most hazard-prone areas in the region.
Southeast Asian Rivers: Assessment and Modelling of Sediment transport in the Irrawaddy and Sarawak Rivers
Global studies have ascertained that Southeast Asian have sediment loads one to two orders of magnitude greater than rivers draining other mountainous areas of the world.
