HEBERT Hélène

Engineer and doctor of geophysics, I joined CEACEA to participate in seismic and tsunami hazard studies, in particular to study Pacific tsunamis using digital tools. When the 2004 tsunami occurred in the Indian Ocean, I took part in setting up the future French tsunami warning system, Cenalt, which has been operational since 2012. My subjects of study also focused on the contribution of knowledge of tsunamis to better understand the physical processes and mechanisms linked to their generation and propagation, while carrying out hazard studies to better anticipate the effects on the coast.
