Deciphering shallow marine ecosystem dynamics during rapid global warmings: an early Eocene North Sea Basin perspective (Belgium)

This research is intended to lead to a better understanding of the interactions and feedbacks between the geo- and biosphere in shallow-water settings, and to answer the question how early Eocene benthic ecosystems respond to environmental changes during periods of rapid global warming.

BUG: Brussels Urban Geology

The goal of the programme concerns the possibility of creating a performing computer system (Brussels Urban Geology) that will allow a fast and direct access to 2D and 3D geology of the Brussels subsoil using GIS.
