Living with Risk

Vivre avec le risque

A short animated film tells you the history of past natural disasters, and ways found by men to protect themselves.



Planet Earth

planète Terre

This animation allows you to discover the internal structure of the Earth, plate tectonics, continental drift, and the location of earthquakes and volcanoes.




This animation allows you to simulate volcanic eruptions, varying different parameters (viscosity lava, dissolved gas pressure).




This animation allows you to simulate earthquakes by varying different parameters (magnitude, depth of focus, geographic area).




This animation consists of two modules, one on the waves (creation, propagation ...), the other Tsunami (training, spread, consequences, prevention)




Now that you have become an expert in natural hazards, test your knowledge by answering the questions of the quiz!
