  • Projet AXA SEDIMER (2012-2015)


                 Porteur du projet : Franck Lavigne (Lab. Géographie Physique, Univ. Paris I)

                 Participant IPGP : Jean-Christophe Komorowski


Funded by the AXA Research Fund, the SEDIMER Project (2012-2015) proposes a collaborative study gathering experienced international experts and young scientists from seven countries including Indonesia  to determine what happened in 2010 and what is likely to happen in the next three years in the valleys downstream of Mt Merapi.
We plan to complete a database on lahar occurrence and related disasters, to identify the sediment sources, to study the lahar dynamics and geomorphic impacts with implications for risk prevention. We will calculate the economic impacts (loss and benefits) caused by lahars and assess risk perception among local residents.


  1. 1. To build and complete a database on lahar occurrence and related disasters since the 2010 eruption.

  2. 2. To identify the most important sediment sources, to determine if there are any erosional hotspots, and to determine whether these sediment sources change with time. 

  3. 3. To study the lahar dynamics through eyewitness observations and video analysis.

  4. 4. To improve lahar modeling using physical-based models for basic research and risk prevention.

  5. 5. To study the geomorphological impacts of lahars in each drainage basin, i.e. riverbed and riverbank erosion, downstream river aggradation, using satellite and Geographic Information System (GIS). 

  6. 6. To assess demographic, social, political, and economic impacts caused by upstream riverbank erosion and by downstream river sedimentation. A thorough multidisciplinary analysis of structural, functional,  institutional, social and cultural vulnerability of the population will help us to assess and improve the existing risk mitigation measures.

  7. 7. To analyze the processes of decision making, crisis management, and risk reduction. A strength of this project is thus to propose a comprehensive approach to lahar-related risk through the analysis of all components of the risk chain, from the event to prevention and territorial management. Such an interdisciplinary study will reduce the gaps between earth science, social science, economics and political issues. A strength of the SEDIMER project is an endeavour to understand how the mechanisms that perpetuate vulnerability in developing countries have a direct bearing on issues of territorial planning.

  • ANR Arc Vanuatu (2007-2010)

          coordinateurs du projet : Bernard Pelletier (IRD) et Sylvie Vergniolle de Chantal (IPGP)


Ce projet ambitieux couplant géophysique et géochimie visait à mieux comprendre la géodynamique de l’arc du Vanuatu et l’activité volcanique associée (Pacifique Sud Ouest). Il a réuni différentes équipes et chercheurs de l’IPGP (Equipe de Dynamique des fluides géologiques, Equipe Géologie des Systèmes Volcaniques, Géosciences Marinnes)
