In brief...

The Institut des Sciences de la Terre d’Orléans is a research laboratory in Earth Science dedicated to the external envelops of the Earth from the upper mantle to the atmosphere. Our studies focus on the heat and mass transfers at the interface between the mantle and the crust as well as between the crust and the atmosphere. Application domains of our research activities include the mineral, energy and water primary resources, the volcanic hazards, and the environmental impacts of anthropic activities.

RHEOLITH

RHEOLITH

A better comprehension of the rheology of the lithosphere is required to relate long and short term deformation regimes and describe the succession of events that lead to earthquake generation. But our vision of the rheology is blurred…

ELECTROLITH

Melting in the Earth’s mantle is a fundamental process in the deep volatile cycles because it produces liquids that concentrate and redistribute volatile species. Such redistribution can trigger…
