ObjectivesThe TREMOR project aims to improve the regional geological knowledge of the Cenozoic Hampshire-Dieppe basin and its surroundings in terms of stratigraphy, paleogeography, and structural history. These studies are inserted into the transversal axis 'Manche Orientale' (Eastern Channel) of the Team 6 (Tectonique des marges et des bassins sédimentaires, head: V. Gaullier) of the LOG (Laboratory of Oceanology and Geosciences) - University of Lille 1 - University ULCO. The study area lies mostly over French waters but scientific questions can only be answered by studying UK waters (extension of specific tectonic structures, stratigraphic geometries).
