The characterization of landscape includes natural settings such as topography, geomorphology, land cover and use, and also human disturbance. In order to assess changes in the environment, it is crucial to monitor its spatio-temporal dynamics. Both field measurements and remote sensing are applied to characterize geomorphic patterns and biotic components to track disturbances in the landscape over a range of timescales. Our team of experts integrates collection and laboratory-based post-processing of sediment (both fine and coarse), landscape mapping using drones and LiDAR techniques, and the application of mathematical models to help understand environmental geomorphology.
