Video: Removal of the Pierre Glissotte dam

LGP researchers have produced a film on the work performed on the Pierre Glissotte dam to restore the ecological continuity of the Yonne.

The film, recorded in April 2017, shows the morphological evolution of the Yonne following the first stage in the demolition of the dam. The restoration project is supported by the Agence de l’Eau Seine-Normandie and PIREN-Seine and was the subject of a thesis written by Louis Gilet as part of a Chocosed project (Université Panthéon-Sorbonne and CNRS Physical Geography Laboratory).
