Temporary station of the GNSS network of the ANR Saussure on the Argentière glacier (Haute-Savoie)


Description : The temporary station of the GNSS network of the ANR Saussure on the Argentière glacier (Haute-Savoie) located at 2400 metres altitude and set up since April 2019. The Saussure project (Glacier sliding and glacier water preSSure) aims to evaluate, improve and validate different friction laws in a natural configuration on a geophysical scale. The instrument visible in the picture belongs to the National Mobile GNSS Park (GPSMob), which is part of Résif, a national research infrastructure dedicated to the observation and understanding of the structure and dynamics of the inner Earth. Résif is based on high-tech observation networks, composed of seismological, geodesic and gravimetric instruments deployed densely throughout France. The data collected allows the study of ground deformation, surface and deep structures, local and global seismicity and natural hazards, particularly seismic hazards, on the French territory with a high spatial and temporal resolution. Résif is part of the European (EPOS - European Plate Observing System) and global systems of instruments for imaging the Earth's interior in its entirety and for studying numerous natural phenomena.
