Long term denudation rates and relief development: numerical modelling and data constraints

Abstract : This report contains a review of my research activities since obtaining my Ph.D. degree, first at the Research School of Earth Sciences of the Australian National University (1995-1997), and since 1998 at the Laboratoire de Géodynamique des Chaînes Alpines of the Université Joseph Fourier in Grenoble, France. It also presents the research perspectives I would like to develop in the coming years. In the first part of this report I present my Curriculum Vitae and concisely introduce the research themes I have developed over the last years, as well as my activities in advising research students and teaching. This part, written in French, also contains a list of publications and seminars. The second part contains a review of the relationships between tectonics, erosion, and long-term relief development. After a general introduction, I summarize my personal contribution to this research area, which concerns both the development and use of numerical surface process models to study relief development, and using thermochronological data in order to constrain rates of denudation and relief change. Finally, in the third part of this report I outline my research perspectives for the coming years, which revolve around the further development and testing of numerical surface process models as well as developing new thermochronological databases that better permit to constrain relief development.
