Airborne geophysics: assessing solid rock quarrying potential in La Réunion

La Réunion is facing a shortage of solid rock supplies, which are essential to major civil engineering projects. To address the problem, the BRGM conducted a pilot study based on data collected in 2014 during the ReunEM heliborne geophysical survey campaign.

Heliborne geophysical survey of La Réunion: applications to materials prospecting

Heliborne prospecting for materials can produce imagery of hard rock sectors on and below the surface, but can also identify the thickness of loose weathering formations (clays) that prevent access to these deposits and which can also be used in some cases.

Heliborne geophysical survey of La Réunion: identification of potential sites for a non-hazardous waste storage facility

The BRGM used the results of the ReunEM heliborne geophysical survey of La Réunion made in 2014 to identify potential sites for a non-hazardous waste storage facility in the north-east of the island.

Heliborne geophysics in La Réunion: applications for furthering knowledge on water resources

The BRGM, in partnership with the EU (ERDF), the French State and the La Réunion Region, conducted a heliborne geophysical survey of the entire island in 2014, in order to map its geological resources. Interpretation of the ReunEM campaign findings is of great interest to further knowledge on the...

CONCERT-EAUX: impacts of climate change on water resources in the Roya catchment basin

The BRGM is one of the 7 partners in the CONCERT-EAUX project. This project, funded by the European ALCOTRA programme and launched in April 2017, is addressing climate change and the impacts of global change on water resources in the Roya catchment basin.

POCTEFA POCRISC: promoting shared seismic risk awareness

The BRGM is partnering the POCRISC project coordinated by the Cartographic and Geological Institute of Catalonia (ICGC).The project is receiving 65% in co-funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) under the V-A Spain-France-Andorra Interreg Programme (POCTEFA 2014-2020).The project...

FAIRWAY: farm systems management and governance for producing good water quality for drinking water supplies

The H2020 FAIRWAY project aims to find solutions to agricultural impacts on both surface water and groundwater quality. BRGM co-leads the workpackage 3: Monitoring and Indicators.

SECURe : a H2020 project to provide best practices for geological CO2 storage

The H2020 project SECURe, for Subsurface Evaluation of CCS and Unconventional Risks, started on June 1st, 2018. BRGM leads the work package 2: environmental baseline and monitoring strategies.
