The team of researchers simulates the desorption of a pesticide from a clay surface in the presence of water. The thermodynamics of this desorption will make it possible to compare the simulated data with the experimental macroscopic data relating to the desorption process, of significant value in understanding the release phenomena in water tables.
Numerical simulation is a valuable tool for precisely imaging the internal geological structure of the planet and thus better understanding all the processes at work during major seismic events, with the target of determining operational scenarios for support of public authorities.
In the heart of the volcano
High definition simulations allow to better understand the impact on populations, ecosystems and on the climate of volcanic eruptions, that are regarded as one of the biggest sources of natural pollution.
Anatomy of an earthquake
The earthquake that struck the Tohoku region in Japan in March 2011 was one of the most powerful recorded since the start of the 20th century.
