Welcome to the CEREGE collection

CEREGE, Centre de Recherche et d’Enseignement de Géosciences de l’Environnement (Centre for Research and Teaching in Environmental Geoscience), regroups around 130 permanent staff (45 university lecturers and professors, 40 researchers and 45 engineers, technicians, and administrative staff), and 110 temporary staff including around 60 graduate students. CEREGE is a joint research centre (UM 34), incorporating Aix-Marseille University (AMU), the CNRS (UMR7330), the IRD (UMR 161), and the COLLEGE DE France. The INRA is also a partner. We are located in Provence, at the Technopôle Environnement Arbois Méditerranée, Petit Plateau de l’Arbois (Aix-en-Provence, Les Milles) and on the St Charles campus of AMU in Marseille. Thanks to its theoretical, methodological, and technological approaches to research, CEREGE is strongly interdisciplinary

[hal-03873247] Episodic reactivation of carbonate fault zones with implications for permeability – An example from Provence, Southeast France

Exposed in large, continuous outcrops in Provence, southern France, the Castellas fault formed as a normal fault in the Upper Cretaceous and was reactivated as a left-lateral fault in the Eocene. Structural, petrographical, isotopic, and geochronological analyses shed light on the sequence of deformational-diagenetic stages of the fault zone and help identify properties that controlled fluid-flow behavior through time. Abrupt contrasts in fracture abundance compared to the undeformed host rock define a damage zone containing fractures arranged in regularly spaced clusters. We identified eleven episodes of calcite cementation within opening-mode fractures and host rock primary pores. Cement fabrics, sediment fills, and geochemistry show evidence of shallow burial environments. U–Pb geochronology of calcite cements indicate two main deformational phases of the fault zone during the Albo-Cenomanian Durancian uplift and Eocene Pyrenean orogeny at ca. 90 Ma and 50-40 Ma, respectively. Deformation created poro-permeability, but cementation followed shortly after, pervasively occluding most of the fault zone porosity by the end of the Eocene.
