CREEP : Complex RhEologies in Earth dynamics and industrial Processes



The objective of the CREEP research program is to advance our understanding of the complex rheology of Earth and industrial materials and its consequences for our planet dynamics, from the global deformation to natural or human-induced seismicity, and for industrial uses of rock-like materials. To fulfil this aim, we use a multidisciplinary and multi-scale approach, which associates observations, experiments, and numerical and laboratory modelling in mineral physics, rock mechanics, tectonics, seismology, and geodynamics, spanning a wide range of spatial scales, from the nanoscale to global mantle dynamics.
