Earth sciences and environment

MINES ParisTech develops competences in geology, geophysics, geostatic, hydrology and hydro-dynamics, geo-mechanics, chemistry, nuclear physics, and system engineering. The activities aim at the mastering of the metrology of phenomena, their modelling and choice of solution.

The current main topics are:

  • exploitation of mineral raw materials and fossil fuel, in particular characterization of deposits and drilling,
  • long term stability of the geological environment and installations,
  • pollution of human environment,
  • risk management (soil, subterranean, pollution),
  • interaction between materials and environment.
