Research: J. Moeyersons is geomorphologist and staff member of the RMCA since 1970. He made a Ph.D. on the morphology on granite rocks in Nigeria and a high school aggregation on the problems of soil erosion and degradation in Rwanda. By participation in geomorphological and archeological missions, he gained field experience in a number of African countries, most of them south of the Sahara: Cameroon, Nigeria, Zaïre, Rwanda, Burundi, Kenya, Egypt, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia. Most of his work has been devoted to experimental studies, field measurements and observations of current erosion processes, and to the interpretation of quarternary deposits in terms of palaeo-erosion and palaeo-environmental condition
