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