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.


Ocean Geosciences

The Ocean Geosciences Course is closely linked to the eponymous laboratory. Graduates of this Master’s degree will be able to develop and design research projects, provide expertise and advice within public or private structures in the fields of geosciences and, in particular, marine geosciences. This master’s degree allows the pursuit of a PhD in the field of marine geosciences.
