The research team Lithosphere Dynamics involves about 40 people (researchers, lecturers, professors, technicians, engineers, students and post-docs). We investigate through observation, analysis and modelling major geodynamical processes occurring at plate boundaries, such as subduction and orogeny, as well as the rheology and deformation of continental lithosphere, along with the development of appropriate research tools.

Tools and techniques: field geology, tectonics, geomorphology, perology, geochemistry, geochronology, geophysical imagery, analogue and numerical modelling.

Our research team is involved in several important projects both in France and in the world:
- Antilles,
- Mediterranean,
- Himalaya,
- Taiwan,
- Yukon (Canada),
