Maria Martinez de Alvaro

Fluvial Sedimentology - The study of river systems based on fossil rock record is challenging and fascinating. Within this topic I am really interested in the understanding of the behaviour of ancient fluvial systems as well as the comparison of modern with ancient river systems.
