Presentation of the lab

published on , updated on

The Laboratory of Physical Geography (LGP) was created in 1969 (initially called Laboratoire de Géographie Physique “Pierre Birot”) and is part of the CNRS (National Center for the Scientific Research), the University Panthéon-Sorbonne and the University Paris-Est Créteil.
The LGP’s research interests lay at the interface between Earth (geomorphology, geology), Life (ecology and biology) and Social Sciences (geography, archeology). The research carried out at the LGP is both fundamental and applied as it deals with the reconstruction of the Quaternary paleoenvironments, the historical evolution of hydrological systems, the analysis of biodiversity, the effects of climate change on the environment and the dynamics of natural hazards.
