Paleogeoecologia, Riscos Naturals i Gestió Ambiental (PaleoRisk)

Informació general

Grup de recerca reconegut per la Generalitat de Catalunya

Due to the inherent sensitivity of mountain ecosystems to climatic variability and land uses, paleoecological studies are extremely important to obtain a detailed knowledge of past and recent changes in high mountain environments, to anticipate future changes and to evaluate climatic-geomorphic risks. Our research activity on alpine fluvial variability started in 2001 with a Feodor-Lynen Postdoc Fellowship funded by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. Despite of a previous collaboration network for years, in December 2006 the FluVAlps Research Group has been established for the understanding of fluvial and geoecological dynamics of high mountain environments and for the contribution of data, particularly from natural archives, to the field of potential effects of climate change. Today our multidisciplinary research group of physical geographer, geoecologists, archaeologist, physics and climatologists integrates project full-members and associated members from Spain, Switzerland, Austria and Germany. Project coordination is hosted at the Department of Physical and Regional Geography of the University of Barcelona. The present core projects are the FluVAlps-3000 Project (Fluvial variability in the Alps during the last 3000 years) and FluvGeoQuim-Project (Determination of Flood Events from Sedimentary and Geochemical Records) funded by the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science. However, several group members coordinate or participate in other research projects on paleoclimate, paleoenvironment, Quaternary science, human-environment interactions and natural hazards in a broad range of mountain regions (e.g. Alps, Andes, Pyrenees, Sierra Nevada) just as in lowlands (e.g. Neogene Betic basins, Ebro basin, Mediterranean coast). The following institutions and enterprises participate in the FluVAlps 3000 Project and related research activities: 

  • University of Barcelona, ES
  • University of Berne, CH
  • Catalan Meteorology Survey, ES
  • Archaeological Survey of Canton Berne, CH
  • University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences, Vienna (BOKU), AUT
  • Catalan Institute of Palaeoecology and Human and Social Evolution (IPHES), ES
  • Ofiteco S.A., Madrid, ES
  • Schmidt Information- and Webdesign, Düsseldorf, DE
