Seismic,geologic faults in the region and associated risk of earthquakes.
Project leader : Alain Rabaute.
This research focuse on the quantitative characterization of the properties and evolution of sediment accumulations, particularly, but not exclusively, in marine settings, and their relationships with regional and local active tectonics.
