Web series: BRGM's major scientific advances in 2020

The BRGM teams look back at the major scientific advances made by the French geological survey in 2020. The programme includes video presentations of 8 topics in the framework of our 6 scientific challenges: geology and knowledge of the subsurface, groundwater management, risks and land use planning, mineral resources and the circular economy, energy transition, and data and digital infrastructures.
