Welcome to the IPGP website
Study of the structure and internal dynamics of planets and their evolution through geological time.
By combining several approaches, study of major issues such as eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis, landslides or magnetic storms.
Measuring, understanding and modelling the functioning of our planet's surface, also called the Critical Zone.

InSight National Observation Service
The NASA InSight mission deployed a geophysical observatory on the surface of Mars at the end of 2018, performing simultaneous seismic, geodetic and magnetic measurements. This National Observation Service is supported by the IPGP, together with several French laboratories and observatories (in particular the LPG and GEOAZUR).More information
