Prof. Christophe Morhange


Throughout my academic career, my major goal has been to contribute in establishing to the interdisciplinary study of harbour geoarchaeology in the Mediterranean and the Black sea. My research tools include RSL bio-indicators (rocky and clastic coasts), sedimentology, and geomorphology. My objective is to better understand the evolution of ancient harbours, a theme I started 30 years ago. Using quantitative palaeoecological methods, I have moved from the characterization to the quantification of human impacts both within and outside ancient harbour basins.
