Recently, members of the VUB AMGC research group (PhD-student Matthias Sinnesael (FWO) and former PhD-student dr. David De Vleeschouwer (MARUM, Bremen) visited prof. Miroslav Zivanovic from the department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering in UPNA, Pamplona. This visit is a part of an international collaboration between geologists and engineers who have joined their forces in the study of cyclic (paleo-) climate research. The geologists are experienced and interested in cyclostratigraphy while the engineers – also in collaboration with VUB professor Johan Schoukens from the ELEC research group - have an extensive knowhow in the field of signal processing.
Both expertise’s are bundled and resulted in exciting new ideas and corresponding output. Last year a first shared Open Access publication was published in Geoscientific Model Development and there is a sustained collaboration in the new Cyclostratigraphy Intercomparison Project. Now the project received some local media attention during the last visit in Pamplona.
