This PhD is part of the OROGEN project, co-funded by Total-BRGM-INSU, which attempts to better constrain the processes associated to orogens formation, from pre-orogenic inheritance to post-orogenic evolution, by the study of the Pyrenean system.
The aims of this project are to work on transfer systems related to the segmentation of the Pyrenean – Cantabrian system and define their inheritance and their evolution during rifting and the subsequent compression. To compare the transfer systems and upscale them in a plate kinematic scenario provided by the kinematic restoration of the Atlantic system. And to compare with other analogues and provide the interface with modelling (input vs. output).
