Natural hazards and cartography

Our research focuses on:

  • compiling an inventory of hazards of geological and geomorphological origin: volcanoes, seismic events and landslides, particularly in Central Africa
  • analysing these hazards and how they relate to geodynamic processes
  • studying the temporal and regional variability of these phenomena
  • assessing the vulnerability of populations and infrastructure, and the risks associated with these hazards
  • developing and using satellite methods and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) tools for spatial analysis and modelling.

Our activities are based on a strong network of African partners.
