Exploiting the geological heritage of the Pyrénées-Orientales département

A new book about the Pyrénées-Orientales département has been published in BRGM’s Curiosités géologiques collection

Geophysical modelling of the Catalan magnetic anomaly: study of the crustal structure of the Gulf of Lion margin

As part of a research project (the OROGEN project, carried out jointly with TOTAL and INSU-CNRS), BRGM has drawn on datasets from the French Gravimetric Database and the French Airborne Geophysical Database to study and model the geological structure that causes the Catalan magnetic anomaly.

Guadeloupe: a guide to recycling and use of inert waste in the construction industry

In consultation with stakeholders in the construction and recycling sectors, BRGM has compiled the available information on inert waste that can be recycled by the construction sector in Guadeloupe, in a document that aims to encourage a more virtuous approach and promote the circular economy.

Handbook on kaolin and kaolinic clays

Nearly 400,000 tonnes of kaolin and kaolinic clays are extracted each year in France from 41 quarries. This handbook summarises the latest knowledge on these materials and on the value chains using kaolin across France.

Hub'Eau: all water-related data in near-real time

As a permanent feature of the EauFrance websites, Hub'Eau provides application programming interfaces (otherwise known as API REST) to facilitate access to data from the Water Information System, in formats that are easy to use and suitable for reuse (CSV, JSON, GeoJSON).

Implementation of a risk management strategy for muddy water flows in the Strasbourg Eurométropole

In a context of climate change, likely to lead to an increase in muddy water flows, and as part of the management of these phenomena in non-urban runoff, the Strasbourg Eurométropole wishes to implement a programme covering the 14 municipalities concerned by these events (96 separate catchment...

Improving geological and hydrogeological knowledge of the Orne département (AGHO programme)

As part of a specific programme to improve understanding of the functioning of groundwater resources, for the whole of the Orne département, a synoptic review of current knowledge was made based on exploration of the sedimentary and basement rock sectors by the departmental water agency. The...

Isotopic tools: tracing the sources of contaminants defined in the Water Framework Directive

Isotopes of metallic contaminants (lead, copper, zinc, nickel) and nutrients (nitrates, phosphates) are extremely useful for identifying their sources and the processes controlling their fate in water resources.
