Three research axes are being developed within the GEOSMIT department:
1. Spatial monitoring and observations of vegetation changes in terrestrial and coastal ecosystems using remote sensing.
2. Vulnerability of human and natural environments to pressures induced by oceanic processes, climate change and anthropogenic activities
3. Information technology dedicated to scientific data manipulation and knowledge sharing with focus on biodiversity
