As an international multidisciplinary research and teaching centre and a centre of excellence in terms of human and technical resources, CEREGE covers almost the entire field of environmental geosciences.
This thesis focuses on the Provençal Urgonian platform (Upper Barremian-Lower Aptian).
This thesis attempts to answer a fundamental question: Is it possible to characterise the sedimentary bodies on the Provençal carbonate platform ? if so, what are their geometries ? and what are the processes (stratigraphic and sedimentary) that have enabled their genesis and preservation?
