Research - Observation - Teaching

As a world-renowned earth science institution, IPGP studies the Earth and planets from the core to the uppermost shells through observation, experiments, and modeling. Special emphasis is placed on long-term observations, which are critical to the study of natural systems. IPGP is responsible for observational services in volcanology, seismology, magnetism, gravimetry, and erosion through its permanent observatories on the islands of Guadeloupe, Martinique, and La Réunion, and at Chambon-la-Forêt (France). In addition, the IPGP, in partnership with the Institut de Physique du Globe de Strasbourg, maintains two global geophysical networks that track changes in the Earth's magnetic field (INTERMAGNET network) and seismic activity (GEOSCOPE network).
