Current Projects

  • Long-term landscape evolution in the Western Cantabrian Mountains (NW Spain) by means of apatite fission-track and (U-Th-Sm)/He thermochronology to unravel the rate, timing, and amount of exhumation. 2-D and 3-D modelling of the data with HeFTy (Ketcham, 2005; Ketcham et al., 2007a; b) and PECUBE (Braun, 2002; 2003; Braun et al., 2006).
