Celine Grall


I am a Researcher at the French National Research Center (CNRS) in La Rochelle University and an adjunct Researcher of the LDEO of Columbia University (USA) working on the dynamics of the earth regarding climate (relative sea level) and telluric hazards.

One of my main interests is on estimating the effect of active sedimentation on subsidence driving forces (i.e. sediment compaction, lithospheric thermal structure) and on the relative sea level today and further back in the past.
