Earth, Planetary & Environmental Sciences



The objectives cover a wide range of themes: understanding coastal dynamics, the evolution of the Earth’s mantle, the dynamics of rifts, margins, ridges, and sedimentary, paleo-climatic and paleo-environmental records.  The work proposes a multidisciplinary and multiproxy approach based on instrumental poles: ocean spectrometry pole-instrumental pole in geophysics-sedimentology/micropaleontology/palynology pole.
