Géosciences Rennes

Université de Rennes 1

Le laboratoire de modélisation analogique de Géosciences Rennes (UMR 6118) est né en 1975 autour de la thématique des déformations ductiles et a évolué ensuite vers la déformation fragile et les couplages fragiles/ductiles ainsi que la tectonique salifère. Sur cette thématique, plus de 50 chercheurs ont été impliqués, et plus de 30 thèses ont été soutenues. A partir de 2000, il s’est diversifié pour aborder des problématiques de géomorphologie quantitative (réponse des reliefs aux perturbations tectoniques et climatiques, transport sédimentaire…) et aux interactions entre déformation et pression fluides (décollements et génération d’hydrocarbures, structuration des prismes d’accrétion, …).

Plus de 148 articles de rang A ont été publiés, pour un total de citation supérieur à 4000, dont 20 articles ayant un indice de citation supérieur à 50. Plusieurs distinctions scientifiques ont été accordées (Prix Cristal du CNRS à J-J Kermarrec, 4 prix de thèse nationaux ou régionaux).

Le laboratoire de modélisation assure la réalisation de projets expérimentaux autour de 3 grandes thématiques :

  1. -La tectonique sensu lato (déformations ductiles, couplages fragile/ductile, couplage sédimentation/déformation, tectonique salifère).

  1. -La géomorphologie (évolution des reliefs, rivières en incision, transport sédimentaire).

  1. -Les couplages déformation/fluides.

Sur ces thématiques, entre 100 et 200 expériences sont réalisées par an, avec en moyenne une participation de 5 chercheurs, 2 doctorants et de nombreux masters.

Le laboratoire est très ouvert sur l’extérieur avec de nombreuses collaborations nationales et internationales, tant académiques, qu’industrielles. Il est reconnu comme l’un des principaux laboratoires expérimentaux de modélisation des processus tectoniques et géomorphologiques en France. Il participe aussi à la mise en place de TP sur l’approche expérimentale en Sciences de la Terre.

Autres utilisateurs locaux :

Les demandes de travaux sont centralisées et planifiées par J. Kermarrec et P. Rolland en accord avec B. Guillaume. Il s’agit de déterminer la faisabilité des expériences et/ou de planifier et coordonner les expériences, définir des priorités pour les développements techniques et favoriser l’accès au plus grand nombre de chercheurs. Un tarif établi en fonction du type d’expérience (sable, sable/silicone, sable/silicone/miel, silice) est disponible sur demande pour les chercheurs de Géosciences et les chercheurs extérieurs. L’atelier de modélisation analogique n’a pas la vocation d’effectuer des expériences sur commande mais fournit, si possible, les moyens techniques pour leur mise en place dès la phase de conception sur le papier. Chaque expérience est ensuite réalisée par les chercheurs/étudiants directement concernés.
