pFrancus1Mes projets de recherche ont pour objet l'étude des sédiments lacustres et marins, actuels et passés, dans le but de reconstituer les paléoclimats et les paléoenvironnements. De nature interdisciplinaire, mes projets les plus récents se focalisent sur les sédiments varvés (annuellement laminés) des régions arctiques. En effet, les varves offrent la possibilité de reconstituer les variations interannuelles à séculaires des cycles hydrologiques et climatiques tels que l'oscillation de l'Atlantique Nord, l'oscillation arctique, ... Il s'agit aussi de comprendre les processus actuels, biologiques et sédimentaires, qui conduisent à la formation du sédiment, avant de pouvoir déduire les conditions environnementales anciennes. Mes activités de recherche contribuent également à l'estimation des risques environnementaux naturels (crues, séismes) et des risques résultants des activités humaines (pollution, modification des bassins versants).

Les méthodes utilisées pour parvenir à ces objectifs sont centrées autour d'une technique originale et unique d’analyse d’images de lames minces de sédiments meubles, et d'un nouveau scanographe de microfluorescence-X qui permet l'analyse chimique non-destructive et automatique avec une résolution de 0.1 mm.
