Three instrument rooms support this equipment: HYDEES, which is dedicated to coastal and fluvial hydraulics; Sedimentology, which focuses on the study of sediments; and Géotek, dedicated to non-destructive multiparameter characterization of core samples.
The laboratory team specializes in image analysis and has developed a range of related MATLAB tools. They can also adapt analyses based on your needs. For more information on this topic, please contact the laboratory team (see Contact page).
