Dr. Galderic Lastras Membrive

Professor titular

(Professor)



Degree in Geology in the University of Barcelona (04/10/99) and Ph.D. by the University of Barcelona (27/09/04, PD Earth Sciences) with the Thesis "Recent submarine landslides in the Ebre margin and the Eivissa channel, western Mediterranean" (dir. Dr. Miquel Canals). Member of the CRG in Marine Geosciences, he has participated in fifteen national and international research projects, five with the industria. 99 participations in workshops and conferences and 41 publications in journals and book chapters, of which 21 are in peer-reviewed journals and indexed in SCI. He has participated in 13 oceanographic surveys involved in the acquisition, processing and interpretation of geophysical data from the Mediterranean, Atlantic, Arctic and Antarctic oceans. He has done research stays in the Ocean Mapping Group at the University of New Brunswick in Canada, the Dept. of Geology of the University of Oslo, the National Oceanographic Center of England, and the Instituto Español de Oceanografía. Reviewer of Basin Research, JGR, Marine Geology, Sedimentology and IJES. His PhD Thesis was focused on the study of a large submarine slide on the Ebro continental margin and other landslides in the Eivissa channel, using swath bathymetry, seismic reflection profiles, side-scan sonar, and sediment cores. His current research focuses on the study of the geomorphology and sedimentary processes of large submarine canyons in the Portuguese, Catalan and Patagonian margins. Other research focuses have been the construction of polar margins, neotectonic tsunamigenic faults, the study of the Catalan continental shelf and submarine geotechnical studies. Currently, he co-directs two theses on the tsunamigenic potential of landslides, and on morphology of canyons.
