In 2012 we lost Jean Jacques Peters, former engineer of Flanders Hydraulics Research (1964 till 1979) and international expert in sediment transport, river hydraulics and morphology. As a tribute to him we have created potamology, a virtual memorial archive whose aim is to preserve and disseminate his way of thinking and his morphological approach to river problems all over the world.This archive provides four modules, each with its specific information set relevant to Peters’ work. Where available and if not confidential, there will also be access to the full text. In dialogue with Peters’ family we continue to make his life’s work accessible.

The structural and microstructural study of some devonian 'Favosites' shows the persistence of the microlamellar species related to Paleofavosites until the lower Eifelian. The evolution of the wall is characterized by an increase of the size of the microlamellae and the substitution of the granules of the median dark line by fiber-like units.
