European Plate Observing System France – Epos-France

Epos-France is a national research infrastructure (RI) included in the roadmap of research infrastructures published by the MESR. Its aim is to advance our knowledge of the Earth’s complex, dynamic system. As a result, much of France’s research on the solid Earth will progressively join the Epos-France RI, which represents France’s participation in EPOS, the European RI whose mission is to integrate national and transnational RIs tasked with observing and understanding our planet.

Epos-France is the successor to Résif, the French seismological and geodetic network, which since 2008 has deployed modern instrumentation to measure deformations of the earth’s surface and initiated cross-disciplinary research.
