Scientific context and challenges :

Cultivated soils are subjected to strong constraints, linked to climate and anthropic evolutions. One of the most important consequences of these pressures is water-driven erosion (to which can be added tilling erosion) which can strongly impact productivity and the ecosystem services provided by soils.

The challenge for the « Erosion and Solid transport » team is to approach «key» scientific questions about the issue of soil resource evolution, the degradation processes and the consequences of erosion for soils and the environment in general.

√ LES AXES DE RECHERCHE: 

Our research is structured along three axe :

  • Study of transport/processes and of their dynamics in time and space

The aim is to better understand the physics of erosive processes occurring at different scales of time and space.

  • Imaging of this knowledge in modelling tools

Research on erosion processes contributes to the development of erosion modelling,

  • Anti-erosion agri-environmental engineering

A third axis concerns efforts in more applied research in the field of agri-environmental engineering with a view to sustainable landscape management.
