In the marine environment :

The platform is equipped with wave flumes (and/or current flumes) associated with various equipments and mainly used for the following studies:

  • Dynamics of sediment transport
  • Coastal hydrodynamics
  • Fluid Mechanics


Other environmental units :

The platform has an external experimental area of 300 m², a cold greenhouse of 6 m² and several laboratory incubators, dedicated to experiments on floristic and faunistic communities in controlled conditions such as :

  • Effect measurement of Inter and intra specific competition in plants
  • Earthworms rearing (and of other organisms)
  • Seeds banks estimation
  • Effects measurement of an ecological factor on plants development …


Researches focus on the biological communities diversity at the soil-vegetation interface and on the characterization of the role of this biological diversity on the interface interface.
