Supporting Institutions

In addition, the following 11 entities have expressed their interest in a support letter:

  1. CFURM (Centre Universitaire de Formation et de Recherche de Mayotte) is interested by the results of the Project Equipment to study: i) the subsidence of Mayotte in relation to the seismo-volcanic crisis off-shore; ii) the consequences of seismo-volcanic activity on the physical and social geography of insular systems; iii) societal risk perception and resilience to ecosystem change and natural hazards.
  2. IGN operating the GNSS network in Mayotte -a regional analysis center- will support GNSS/A analysis.
  3. ESGT will perform methodological research for improving navigation accuracy of sub-surface Unmanned Vehicule for local high-resolution geophysical surveys.
  4. CNES will contribute to the GNSS aspects and support sea level studies aiming at merging consistently on-site and satellite altimetry data (Element 1)
  5. SHOM will also contribute to the measurement of sea-level changes (Element1) and to studies on the acoustic response of the ocean (Element 3) and provide 8 p-m each to the project.
  6. GRGS (Groupe de recherche en Géodésie Spatiale) is a widely renowned research group gathering: Bureau des Longitudes, IGN, CNES, INSU, OCA, EOST, OMP, CNAM, OP, UPF, SHOM.  GRGS supports the contributions of its members for the development of GNSS/A, particularly to improve the calibration and validation of radar altimeters near the coast line.
  7. IPGS will contribute by pursuing seismological research in Mayotte and by conducting the calibration/validation operations for the sensors of the OBS equipment (Elements 2 and 3).
  8. IFFSTAR/UGE (Université Gustave Eiffel) is interested in using the Equipment acquired within Element 3 to compare with using broad-band MEMS to measure the seismic noise generated by the ocean on marine wind platform.
  9. ENS Paris (Laboratoire de Géologie) is contributing to optical fiber instrumentation and is interested in exploiting the MARMOR infrastructure and data.
  10. LPG (Laboratoire de Planétologie et Géodynamique, Nantes) is interested (for example) in OBS measurements in front of the Atlantic coast to improve the localization of persistent earthquake activity in the Armorican massif.
  11. OPGC (Observatoire de Physique du Globe de Clermont-Ferrand) hosts the Laboratoire Magma and Volcanoes (LMV), involved in REVOSIMA, and therefore interested in following the activities of Element 5 of the project.
