RISKS

BRGM implements research programmes and decision-support tools designed to anticipate and prevent surface and subsurface risks.

We study risks arising from natural phenomena (such as earth tremors, eruptions, tsunamis, marine submersion, cavity collapse, slope movements and erosion, clay shrinking and swelling and coastline retreat) and from human activities, as well as the impacts of climate change on these risks.
