Sedimentology, Biostratigraphy and Micropaleontology

About Us

  • Carbonates as an archive of past global changes
  • Comparative sedimentology between modern and ancient carbonates
  • Diagenesis and geochemistry of carbonate rocks
  • Sedimentology of flysch deposits
  • Biostratigraphic dating of sedimentary successions
  • Multidisciplinary approach for disentangling the factors controlling different organisms distribution patterns and evolution
  • Taxonomic revisions in the systematic of foraminifers
