By the early 1990s, a detailed issue about dynamics of the Rhône delta and the Camargue area was supervised and edited by the geographer and geomorphologist Mireille PROVANSAL (JMG, 1993/78 3-4,), but geomorphology of coastlines, management practices and initiatives and questions about concrete consequences of global changes for their evolution and societies living along the coast were discussed in depth during the 2000s. In 2005, research questions related to geoarcheology and past human occupation (notably by studying ancient port settings) during the Holocene shed new lights on long-term dynamics of coastal systems and paleo-environments (JMG, 2005/104). Then, paleo, current and future haza...
