Lastest publications


Every year, numerous scientific articles are published using data distributed by the Epos-France research infrastructure, and before that by the French Seismological and Geodetic Network (Résif). In addition to journal articles, these data are used to produce theses, maps, books and book chapters, and conference papers.

Some publications do not directly or clearly mention the origin of the data used (particularly when these data are downloaded from aggregated databases). It is therefore impossible to draw up an exhaustive list of publications based on Epos-France resources. However, the bibliography provided here offers an overview of the wide range of scientific research made possible by Epos-France. You will also find references to photos, illustrations, posters and other documents deposited in the Hal Epos-France open archive, which illustrate the activities of the infrastructure.

The Epos-France bibliography is managed using the Zotero tool (

Some of the publications below are available in full text in the Epos-France open archive (on Hal Science).
