Coastal erosion is a natural process constituting the coastal morphogenetic system but nowadays this process is heavily affected by human works (interventions) carried out on coastal territory and not only. Sediment moves from the mountains to the sea through rivers that, working as a conveyor belt, connect far portions of the same system. With this in mind, the research fellow will be part of activities focused on the sediment continuum analysis from inland to the sea through an integrated approach at catchment scale. The main purpose of the project is providing useful information to mitigate and prevent geomorphological risks coming from coastal erosion and to carry out an effective and sustainable land management.
