Competencies in black are unique of A. Laraque 's profile in the current state of the database

The behaviors of these often gigantic hydrosystems (over 1 million km2) reflect the climatic, geodynamic
and anthropogenic impacts that affect large areas of the intertropical band.  Their regime and hydro-climatic trends are studied
as hydro-sedimento-bio-geochemical processes in a long-term perspective with strong societal implications.
