The B2R team is studying the evolution of sedimentary basins, which were formed several million years ago, because this makes it possible to predict the evolution of current systems and their potential in natural resources.
In these basins, the research unit is interested in the influence of physico-chemical parameters on the evolution of thermobarometric markers such as «crystalline» illite and chlorite, reaction series of phyllosilicates, reflectance of vitrinite, traces of fission, fluid inclusions.
These physico-chemical parameters are used to determine the pressure/temperature conditions of sedimentary basins to better characterize their evolution.
