GIS ORACLE

Location

48° 53' 60" N, 3° 6' 0" E
Brief Site Description: 
Experimental site of the GIS ORACLE is composed of the Grand Morin and Petit Morin catchments.
Detailed Site Description: 

The GIS ORACLE is a "Group of Scientific Interest" created to work on the Research Observatory of the "Grand Morin" and "Petit Morin" river catchments, and particularly to develop studies on floods, low water periods, water quality and the impact of human activities on the environment.

The elaboration of a Research Observatory in Environment concerning the Orgeval , Grand Morin and Petit Morin basins which have been continuously studied for many years (since 1962 for the Orgeval), enables us to better understand hydrological processes in anthropized rural environments with a sedimentary dominant.
