Centre de Recherches Pétrographiques et Géochimiques

Director : Mary Ford Assistant Director : Yves Marrocchi

The Centre de Recherches Pétrographiques et Géochimiques (CRPG) focuses its research on understanding the Earth system, from the initial formation of the solar system to the planet’s present-day conditions. Our research teams bring together geochemists, petrologists and geologists in a combined approach to the four scientific themes that determine the life of the laboratory :

The activity of the CRPG is strongly influenced by geochemical instrumentation at the heart of many research projects. This analytical approach is combined with a modeling approach and with petrological and physical simulation. In addition, researchers CRPG are heavily involved in field trips and sampling conducted on four continents. The CRPG also implements two national analytical services of the INSU : the Service d’Analyse des Roches et des Minéraux (SARM) and the Service National des Sondes Ioniques.

The CRPG is a joint laboratory of the CNRS-Institut des Sciences de l’Univers (INSU) and the University of Lorraine (UL). The CRPG is one of the laboratories of OTELo, a research pole of the University of Lorraine. The CRPG is centered on the Deep Earth and the Continental Surfaces and Interfaces divisions of INSU. The center houses more than a hundred people.
