What is RESIF?
RESIF is a national equipment for the observation and understanding of the solid Earth. It is an ambitious instrument aimed at acquiring new top-quality data for disciplines like seismology, geodesy and gravimetry to advance the understanding of the dynamics of our planet.
Distributed over the whole of France, RESIF makes it possible to measure ground deformation on timescales from a fraction of a second to a decade. RESIF is a state-of-the-art research tool which helps to better characterise natural hazard and manage natural resources.
RESIF contributes to the European and Worldwide systems of instruments which can be used to image Earth’s interior in its totality and to study numerous natural phenomena.
