Research topics

  • Chronology of the Viluy traps (Eastern Siberia) and their relationship with the Frasnian–Famennian mass extinction
  • Volcanic and geomorphologic evolutions of Basse-Terre Island

 

Technical skill:

  • Analyses of thin sections
  • Sample preparations (crush, heavy liquid separation)

    • K/Ar (Cassignol-Gillot technique)
    • 40Ar/39Ar (multi-collector spectrometer)
    • U-Th-Pb by LA-ICP-MS
  • Geomorphology
    • GIS analyses (ArcGis)
    • Numerical reconstructions (ArcGis and ShapeVolc software)
  • Geochemistry
    • Flame spectrometry
    • Exploitation of majors and traces analyses
    • Microprobe chemical analysis
