Research Interests

• Coastal morphodynamics
• Coastal evolution over the Quaternary Period forced by changes in the mean sea level, with particular emphasis on rocky shores and estuaries, through the use of several proxies

Short Bio

Delminda Moura is a teacher of morphology and coastal morphodynamic for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd cycles of studies in the Algarve University. Currently, she is a member of the Course Commission of the 1st cycle on Marine and Coastal Management.  Since 2001, was responsible researcher for six research projects on coastal morphodynamics and team member of 17 research projects related to the evolution of coastal systems forced by global changes. Published so far 42 papers in peer review international journals, 17 book chapters and 183 papers in international conference proceedings.
