Miville, François

PhD Student



I’m currently working on the BOVE project, trying to understand organic soil subsidence issues in the Seeland. After the Jura water correction, the Grand Marais has been almost fully drained and the organic matter contained in the peat previously formed exposed to air. Organic matter is now mineralized by a biotic activity at a such scale that a soil subsidence is observable.
