About the authors

Ana Crespo Blanc, born in Switzerland, is Full Professor of Geodynamics at the University of Granada (Spain) since 1993. She has been the President of the Geological Society of Spain between 2008 and 2012. Her research focuses mainly on structural and kinematic analysis, relationships between deformation and metamorphism, isotopic geochemistry, marine geology and analogue modelling. She applied these different methodologies to the knowledge of the tectonic evolution of key areas of the Hercynian chain of Iberia, the Alps, the Himalaya or the Nankay Trough. Since the nineties, her research is mainly centered on the Mediterranean region, in particular the Betic-Rif orogen around the Gibraltar Arc. She is particularly interested in the architecture and the strain partitioning of such an arcuate orogen. Presently, she is interested in kinematic reconstructions of the Western Mediterranean, for which she characterized with her research group the different deformation events that affected the whole area. At the same time, she is involved in significant outreach activities concerning research in earth sciences.

Kosmas Pavlopoulos (KP) was born in Athens, Greece. He received his B.Sc. in Geology and Ph.D. in Environmental Geomorphology from the University of Athens, Greece in 1986 and 1992, respectively. Since 2013, KP is Professor of environmental geomorphology in Geography and Planning Department at the University of Paris-Sorbonne Abu Dhabi. His previous appointments have been in Geography Department at the Harokopio University, Athens, Greece since 1999. He was chair of the working group on geoarcheology of IAG from 2009 to 2017 and member of the Scientific Committee of the French Archaeological School in Athens from 2010 to 2017. From 2017 is member of the Executive Committee of IAG (International Association of Geomorphologists) as Publishing Editor. Recognized specialist in the field of coastal geomorphology, sedimentology, Quaternary geology, seal level changes. His research focuses on the sediments depositional environments on arid and semi-arid areas, geomorphological evolution of marginal landscapes, on the sea level changes, on the hydrogeology and the wadi dynamic, on water resources management and on natural hazards, in the Mediterranean and in the Middle East.He has participated in 62 research projects, in 20 of which as coordinator. He has more than 140 publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals (68 currently shown in Scopus) and his work received more than 677 citations (h-index = 16, co-authors 141, source Scopus) and (156 currently shown in Research Gate), 1181 citations (h-index = 30.88, source Research Gate). KP has been a supervisor in 9 PhD and as member of the supervising committee of 12 PhD students. He is member, as an expert in Geosciences and environment, for the evaluation of research projects launched by the Greek Ministry of Research since 2000, by the French institute of CNRS 2004-2007 (ECLIPSE program), by French ministry of Education and Research from 2012-2013 (ANR project), by the MIUR (the Italian Ministry for Education, University and Research) 2015-2016 (Reprise project) and by the Ford Motor Company in 2016 (Conservation and Environmental Grants). 

Federica Riguzzi, degree in Physics and PhD in Earth Sciences at the University of Rome La Sapienza. Senior Researcher at Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia, Rome Italy. Her research activity is mainly focused on geodetic methods applied to geophysics; it concerns both methodological and applied studies devoted to the realization and measurement of crustal deformation control and to fundamental Physics experiment networks; time series analysis of GPS observations to study the deformation fields and seismotectonic processes; use of historical information and recent seismic data applied to seismic risk areas. The geodetic methodologies have been applied to geophysical studies in different regions and with various aims. Her contributions are mainly focused on the definition of global scale plate motion models in different reference frames; the study of kinematics and deformation fields of the central-Mediterranean and Suez-Sinai areas, along the Betic Cordillera (Spain and Morocco) and of the Eastern Himalaya Syntaxis (NE India) by GNSS observations; the analysis of  co- and post- seismic deformations after the occurrence of significant seismic events; the estimation of deformation source of the Colli Albani volcano (Roma); the definition of a new methodology based on the joint analysis of deformation rates and seismicity data to assess the earthquake short term probability of occurrence. Moreover, she carried out macroseismic surveys after the occurrence of significant seismic events and studies on historical seismicity. She collaborates with national and international research groups, the Universidad de Jaen (Spain), the National Research Institute of Astronomy and Geophysics (Egypt), the Geological Survey and the Raman Center for Applied and Interdisciplinary Sciences of Kolkata (India). She has been responsible of Research Units financed by the Gruppo Nazionale di Difesa dei Terremoti and the Department of Civil Defense; moreover she participated to many projects supported by the Italian Space Agency. She is Associate Editor of Annals of Geophysics and author of various scientific papers on national and international journals.

ESTELLE LEROUX obtained her degree as marine technician from the National Institute of Science and Marine Technology (INTECHMER). She began her career in 2000 working for a few years in Petroleum Seismic exploration for CGG International (General Company of Geophysics), especially in the Gulf of Mexico offshore. Subsequently, she spent several years on data acquisition and processing on scientific oceanographic vessels and in different French academic research institutes (IFREMER-French Institute for Marine Research, CNRS-French National Center for Scientific Research, UBO-University of Western Brittany, and IUEM-European University Institute for Marine Research). She then decided to pursue a scientific career. After completing her PhD at UBO/IFREMER on seismic stratigraphy in the Gulf of Lion, in 2012, she joined the UPMC-Sorbonne University in Paris, continuing actively to work on seismic and sequence stratigraphy. Her key study areas were centered on the Cenozoic Western Mediterranean area.In 2016, Estelle Leroux integrated the IFREMER Center in Brest as a marine geologist. Her research focuses on the combined application of stratigraphy and modeling in the analysis of ancient and modern sedimentary basin fills. Her expertise is mainly based on seismic and sequence stratigraphy, as well as numerical geological modeling, both in “Source to sink” and “Mud to Mantle” approaches.Her aim is to decode the sediment sequences, sediment architectures and deposit features in past sedimentary basins, and to provides key guides on both qualitative and quantitative paleo-variations of sediment fluxes, sea-level, and subsidence in order to understand climate and geodynamic changes. She is (co-)author of scientific publications on internationally recognized peer-reviewed journals and is involved in several multidisciplinary projects.
