List of Contributors

Yvonne Battiau-Queney is Professor in Geomorphology and Physical Geography at the University of Science and Technology of Lille, France. Her research focuses on long-term landform development in relationship with plate tectonics, especially in Great Britain, eastern North America, and France. She is also concerned with coastal geomorphology, dune dynamics, and shoreline change in northern France.

Margot Böse is Professor of Physical Geography and Quaternary Research and Dean of the Department of Earth Sciences of the Free University Berlin, Germany. Her fields of research include Holocene environmental changes caused by man-induced geomorphologic processes, Quaternary glacial geomorphology, stratigraphy and periglacial landscape development, in particular in northern Germany, western Poland, and high mountain areas in East Asia.

Chris Bremmer is Head of the Geomechanical Research Section of the Netherlands Institute of Applied Geosciences (TNO), National Geological Survey. He studied hydrogeology at the Free University of Amsterdam. He is currently involved in national and European research projects on engineering geology and geo-hazards in deltaic environments.

Alain Demoulin is a Research Associate of the Belgian National Fund for Scientific Research. He is working at the University of Liège, Department of Physical Geography. His research interests include the long-term landform development and the neotectonic evolution of north-western Europe. His current work focuses on the use of geodetic techniques in the study of present-day crustal motion in intraplate regions.

Yvette Dewolf was Professor in Physical Geography at the University Paris VII Denis Diderot, France. She is ex-president of the Association of Geologists of the Paris Basin. Her research interests include present (Spitsbergen, Northern Canada, Siberia) and ancient (France, Maghreb) periglacial environment, and arid geodynamic processes (Sahara, Niger, Burkina Faso, Australia). At present she is editing a book (fifty-one contributors) on ‘Les Formations Superficielles—Genèse, Typologie, Classification—Paysages et environnements—Ressources et Risques’.

Francesco Dramis is Professor of Geomorphology and Dean of Geology at the Department of Geological Sciences, Roma Tre University, Italy. He is the chairman of the Italian Association of Physical Geography and Geomorphology (AIGEO). His research focuses on Quaternary Geology, including morphotectonics, geological hazards, and periglacial studies. His current scientific interests concentrate on the morphotectonic evolution of the Apennines, with special reference to the geomorphological effects of the Quaternary uplift, and geomorphological-stratigraphic indicators of Holocene climate changes in Eastern Africa and the Mediterranean area.

Jürgen Ehlers is Head of the Mapping Department of the Geological Survey of Hamburg and Lecturer at the Institute for Geography at Bremen University, Germany. His research interests include Quaternary and coastal geology and geomorphology. He is author and editor of many papers and monographs. His current work focuses on an INQUA project concerning the extent and chronology of Quaternary glaciations.

Bernard Etlicher is Professor in Physical Geography at the University Jean Monnet, SaintÉtienne, France. His research focuses on glacial and periglacial deposits of hercynian uplands in France, mainly in the Massif Central. He performed experimental freeze-thaw
