Currículo Resumido

Currently (from 2013) my research activity is more focused in two main areas (involving different teams of national and international research): a) the development and application of methodologies for the study of sediment dynamics using tracers (sand grains painted with ink sensitive to ultraviolet light sand) and grain size analysis based on image analysis; b) the application of heavy minerals as indicators of extreme events affecting coastal areas (tsunamis and severe storms). On these two topics, some results are published (Cascalho et al., 2014; Duarte et al., 2014; Costa et al. 2015 and Cascalho et al., 2016). Alongside to this scientific activity, in a collaboration with the Museu Nacional de História Natural e da Ciência team, some recent work was developed on the scope of scientific dissemination (Reis et al., 2014; Cascalho and Reis, 2014).
