Teams at your service 

All our studies and services in geology and geosciences are provided by the teacher-researchers and researchers of the Geosciences College, the B2R team (Bassins-Réservoirs-Resources - EA 7511) and the AGHYLE team (Agroecology, Hydrogeochemistry, Environments & Resources, - UP 2018.C101). 


To carry out their studies and services, UniLaSalle teams rely on high-performance tools and infrastructures:

Geosciences platform

  • Litholamellage (preparation and analysis of thin sections)   
  • X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis   
  • Scanning electron microscope (SEM - EDS probe) analysis   
  • Rock and materials recognition   
  • Sub-surface geophysics   
  • EBSD probe   
  • Sieving and particle size analysis

GIS platform - Remote sensing

  • Drone acquisition   
  • Topography, geomorphology and image analysis

Hydrogeology platform

  • Hydrogeology in boreholes, rivers and laboratories


  • Digital modeling space dedicated to innovation in geosciences: virtual and augmented reality, 3D modeling, 3D printing, AI (artificial intelligence)
