IGE (Institute of Environmental Geosciences)
IGE (Institute of Environmental Geosciences) is a new common research unit of CNRS/INSU, IRD, UGA et Grenoble-INP, resulting of the fusion of LTHE and LGGE labs in Grenoble. The institute hosts the OHM-CV research observatory. Its research activities are related to varied geophysical environments (physico-chemical atmosphere, cryosphere, oceans, watersheds, critical zones), and focused on their behaviors and interactions in both natural and anthropic influenced conditions. In the last years, the HMCIS (Hydrometeorology, Climate, and Societal Interactions) team has been developing a sustained activity on understanding and modelling human exposure and coping response to weather related crisis conditions. It coordinated two ANR research projects in this field (Adaptflood and Mobiclimex), and is currently involved in the Hymex project ("Flash Floods and Vulnerabilities » and « Towards integrated prediction of heavy precipitation, flash-floods and impacts science teams) and EU H2020 ANYWHERE project. In the PICS project the team shares its competences in social-physical integrated modelling and the use of social impacts data for model validation.
