The project SLIDEQUAKES is about detection and understanding of landslides by observing and modelling gravitational flows and generated earthquakes and is funded by the European Research Council (2 million euros). More precisely, it deals with the mathematical, numerical and experimental modelling of gravitational flows and generated seismic waves coupled with field measurements to better understand and predict these natural hazards and their link with volcanic, seismic and climatic activities.
