RHUM-RUM workshop 2016 in La Réunion

Written by Guilhem Barruol on . Posted in Science


For the end of the ANR program, a workshop has been organized from 28 aug to Sept. 3 s2016, in La Réunion, at the Cité du Volcan in Bourg Murat.

 50 scientists came to La Réunion, from France, Germany, UK, Norway and switzerland. The list of presentation that were presented during the workshop illustrates the works in progress that use the RHUM-RUM geophysical data.
