How to access the database?


To access the database and download data sets, you need to create an account at this address. When your account is validated, you can connect to the database interface or directly download data from the links available on the website using your login and password. Please, follow this tutorial for more information.

Access to the data from Google Earth module

The Google Earth module provides a site visualization and information on data available such as types of measurements, locations, dates, etc. This interface also provides an overview of geophysical maps and cross-sections, which can be directly downloaded from the available links. Data available through predefined requests can be downloaded from this interface too.
