The research program concentrates on geomorphology, paleohydrology and hydrology of large rivers and other large alluvial systems such as mega-fans, fluvial responses to climatic changes, impacts of human activities on large fluvial systems and large plains, long term landscape evolution, organization of continental-scale fluvial basins, and aeolian systems.

In general, the research program focus can be divided into four main branches: a) hydro-geomorphology, b) Quaternary and multidisciplinary studies mainly of fluvial systems, wetlands, eolian systems and geo-ecology; c) long term evolution of landscapes and large fluvial basins, d) Geo-scientific contributions to multidisciplinary research on specific human impacts and global change.

The figure above  shows a diagram of the main areas of research we conduct. This is a simplified and schematic diagram because, in general, the areas of research overlap and strong interactions and relations exist between the different areas in both, temporal and space scales as well as conceptually. The research on large systems on a continental and regional scale can also be considered as what has been defined as mega-geomorphology.
