The EVoLvE project- Quantifying and modeling the morphologic development of composite volcanoes through erosion.
How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

I am a PhD researcher on volcanic morphology at the VUB. I am involved in the EVOLVE project, where we quantify and model the morphology of stratovolcanoes through the analysis of existing volcanoes, analogue and numerical modeling.

- I am a PhD researcher on volcanic morphology at the VUB. I am involved in the EVoLvE project, working on a model of long-term volcano morphology. This model will be based on analogue and numerical models of landscape evolution.

The long-term (ka to ma) degradation of a volcanic edifice is controlled by both regional (e.g., climate, tectonics) and local factors (e.g., original morphology, lithology), resulting in both long-lasting weathering and river incision and short-term hazardous events, such as flank collapses and lahars. Trends among the morphometry of stratovolcano...
Volcano morphology is the result of complex interactions between constructive and destructive phases. The dynamics of eruptive, intrusive and erosive processes are reflected in the shapes of volcanoes today. Quantifying the morphology and degradation patterns of composite volcanoes can provide new insights into the evolution of these landforms and...
Volcanoes are extremely dynamic landforms. They grow by the accumulation of eruptive products and intrusions and degrade by a range of erosion processes such as superficial runoff, chemical and physical weathering, fluvial and glacial incision, and mass movements. In this study, we aim at documenting and quantifying the morphology of natural compos...
The Lund Luminescence Laboratory contributes with luminescence dating to separate projects that study fluvial deposits in the northern and southern foothills of the Tatra mountains (Poland and Slovakia). The aim is to determine the chronology of these deposits and reconstruct the Quaternary development of the mountain range.
