Installation of the permanent seismological station VILS in Ville-en-Selve (Marne)


Description : This photo shows the seismological station at Ville-en-Selve (Marne), whose 12-metre deep borehole houses a seismic sensor. This installation is part of the Résif-CLB (Broadband Construction) project, a permanent seismological antenna composed of nearly 200 sites by 2020. This is one of the flagship actions of Résif, a national research infrastructure dedicated to observing and understanding the structure and dynamics of the Internal Earth. Résif is based on high-tech observation networks, composed of seismological, geodetic and gravimetric instruments deployed in a dense manner throughout France. The data collected make it possible to study with high spatial and temporal resolution the deformation of the ground, surface and deep structures, seismicity on a local and global scale and natural hazards, and more particularly seismic events, on French territory. Résif is integrated into European (EPOS - European Plate Observing System) and global systems of instruments for imaging the Earth's interior as a whole and studying many natural phenomena.
