Epos-France Newsletter

Following on from the Résif-Epos Newsletter, the Epos-France Newsletter is aimed at the geosciences scientific community, as well as the institutional partners of the Research Infrastructure and anyone interested in the topics covered. Published twice a year by e-mail in PDF format and in print, it provides information on Epos-France’s activities, its operations and the major results obtained from its data.

ObservaTerre, the Epos-France website for the general public

This site is designed for a non-specialist audience. Its contents have been developed or validated by scientists involved in Epos-France.

On this site :

  • observe the Earth’s movements, particularly in France,
  • discover the sciences and the scientists who study them,
  • understand how the instruments that measure them work,
  • the social and environmental issues behind them.

The main sections of the site: Seismicity of France, Geophysics for all, Geophysics in the classroom, Taking part, Resources. In addition to navigation via the menus, we have selected certain content for direct access by profile.

Educational Youtube channel

The Epos-France Youtube channel features videos produced by the French Seismological and Geodetic Network (Résif-Epos), which became Epos-France on October 6, 2023. From 2011 to 2023, Résif-Epos deployed modern instrumentation (seismometers, GNSS stations and gravimeters) in mainland France to measure the deformation of the earth’s surface. Like Résif-Epos, Epos-France is coordinated by the CNRS’s Institut National des Sciences de l’Univers and involves the majority of French universities and organizations involved in geosciences research. With a broader thematic scope than Résif-Epos, Epos-France is an infrastructure dedicated to the study of the solid Earth in all its diversity and complexity. Epos-France represents France’s participation in EPOS, the European research infrastructure whose mission is to integrate national and transnational RIs tasked with monitoring and understanding the complex, dynamic system of the solid Earth.
