Scintrex CG5 - CG6 Relative Gravimeters from Résif's GMob instrumental pool


Description : Unlike absolute and superconducting gravimeters, relative spring gravimeters are ultra-mobile. Widely used in the field, they allow gravity mapping that is not possible with large instruments. These instruments are managed by the Montpellier Geosciences Laboratory. They are part of Résif's GMob mobile gravimeters park, 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.
