Atlas de l'archipel de Molène

Atlas of the Molène Archipelago

Geology, geomorphology and sedimentology


A. Ehrhold, B. Le Gall

Edition 2017

This atlas comprises a booklet and three themed maps (hard copy and digital on USB stick), illustrating three major intervals in the very long history of the archipelago. This covers around three hundred million years, from Paleozoic era until now. The main magmatic, tectonic and metamorphic events are described. Changes in the archipelago are also traced, as are the recent dynamics of the barrier beach and of the ocean depths.

Cartes sédimentologiques et morpho-bathymétriques de la baie de Morlaix et de sa région

Sedimentological and Morpho-Bathymetric Maps of the Bay of Morlaix and its Region


A. Ehrhold

Edition 2015

The Bay of Morlaix is one of the jewels of the Brittany coast appreciated for its biological diversity. Its special geological features are, however, far less known. Its underwater morphology is a kind of labyrinth of numerous small islands and shoals. The result is a mosaic of sedimentary provinces where currents and sediments face off at every tide.

Sedimentological Maps of South Brittany

Sedimentological Maps of South Brittany

Between Bay of Vilaine and Glénan Islands


A. Ehrhold

Edition 2014

A regional reconnaissance and surveillance programme of benthic populations of soft bottoms has been carried out in the South Brittany coastal marine area since 2003. The work has involved mapping the sedimentary nature and morphology of subtidal marine bottoms of the Vilaine, Quiberon and Concarneau bays and the Glénan Islands. The results are presented as four 1:20000 scale maps and an explanatory booklet.

Soil Map of France, 1/100 000

Soil Map of France, 1/100 000

Angers


J. Rossignol

Edition 2014

La carte pédologique Angers 1/100 000è se trouve à la limite entre deux grands domaines géologiques : le massif armoricain à l’ouest et le bassin parisien à l’est. Les lithologies sont très différentes, avec à l’ouest des roches schisteuses et métamorphiques, et à l’est des roches sédimentaires où alternent des calcaires et des matériaux siliceux. Dans le massif armoricain, la pédogenèse développe des Brunisols, puis des Luvisols ; l’excès d’eau temporaire est très présent dans ces sols avec des caractères « redoxiques » et -Redoxisols. Dans le bassin parisien les sols sont sous influence du calcaire, de l’hydromorphie temporaire et de l’acidité. Les sols sont très variés, par exemple :   Rendosols, Calcosols,  Calci

Morpho-sedimentary Mapping of Shallow Waters from Cap d'Antifer to Cap d'Ailly

Haute-Normandie


C. Augris, P. Clabaut

Edition 2013

The coastal marine area between Cap d'Antifer and Cap d'Ailly was the subject of a geological mapping programme in 2006. The previously unpublished results are presented as six 1:20000 scale maps and an explanatory booklet. The abundantly-illustrated booklet comments on the different geological structures surveyed. The findings should be of interest to professionals, teachers, developers and policymakers.

On the Trail of Cold Water Corals in the Gulf of Gascony

Eight Geomorphological Maps at 1:100,000


B. Loubrieu, J. Bourillet, L. de Chambure

Edition 2012

Threatened by changing environmental conditions and anthropogenic actions, cold water corals are currently classed as a vulnerable ecosystem by several international institutions. One objective of this study is to characterise their habitats from the geological shapes of the sea bed.
