Abstract:
The research unit Clays, Sedimentary Geochemistry and Environments (AGEs) of the University of Liège (ULg) studies Quaternary sedimentary records, with a particular focus on the minerogenic component, in order to reconstruct palaeoenvironmental and/or palaeoceanographical conditions. A multidisciplinary approach, coupling sedimentology, mineralogy (especially clays) and geochemistry, is used to determine the origin and provenance of detrital materials, to identify the main transport agent and to quantify the sedimentary fluxes.

Within the marine field, AGEs has specific expertise in mineralogy and geochemistry of late Quaternary marine sediments from various oceanic basins (North Atlantic, Arctic, Indian Ocean, Japan Sea). For instance, the research group reconstructs deep-sea circulation patterns of the North Atlantic and Arctic Ocean using mineralogy and isotope analyses of sediments in order to better understand the relationships between ocean circulation changes and climate variability. Recent research also involves palaeoenvironmental reconstructions in coastal and swamp settings (Mediterranean coast from Tunisia and Corsica).
