Qui sommes-nous ?

Le laboratoire Morphodynamique Continentale et Côtière (M2C) est un laboratoire de recherche fondamentale et appliquée de 50 permanents (environ 90 personnes avec les doctorants, post-doctorants, etc.). Le laboratoire est présent sur deux sites géographiques, Caen et Rouen. Nous sommes membres de l’Observatoire Ecce Terra, de la Fédération de Recherche SCALE et du Centre de recherche en Environnement Côtier. Nos domaines de compétences sont ceux des Géosciences et des Sciences de l’Environnement bâtis autour de personnels affiliés à 3 tutelles différentes (CNRS, Université de Caen Normandie et Université de Rouen Normandie).

ENBIMANOR Project (ENhancing Marine coastal BIodiversity in NORmandy)

Supported by the AESN, the ENBIMANOR project aims to understand the evolution in biodiversity of the Normandy coastline and marinas and encompasses two actions targeting non- native species. The first is a regular monitoring of decapod crustaceans and gastropod molluscs along the Normandy rocky foreshores (650 km).

Thesis defense of Antonin VAN EXEM

In a context of global change, the study of past environmental changes makes it possible to place current variations in a historical perspective. Organic matter (OM) deposited in lake sediments is an archive of these changes. Nevertheless, the analysis techniques of these MOs have a centimeter resolution much higher than the high frequency variations recorded in the stratigraphy of lake sediments.

Marie Nicolle's soutenance

The overall increase in temperatures during the period 1850-2012 is not uniform globally and the Arctic is warming twice as much as the average. However, the short time coverage of instrumental data makes it difficult to distinguish between variability and natural and anthropogenic forcing. The study of climate variability "free" of human influence is made from indirect data from palaeoclimatic continental and marine archives. In the Arctic-subarctic region, recordings available at high resolution over the last 2000 and have been centralized in the Arctic 2k PAGES database. The objectives of this work are to improve the characterization and interpretation of climate variability over the last 2000 years, upstream of the millennial trend and major climatic periods, but also by rendering to the role and spatial expression of the internal variability of the climate system.
