The experimental platforms of the Joseph Fourier Alpine Station correspond to a set of infrastructures (natural meadows, experimental garden, nursery, laboratories and air-conditioned greenhouses) allowing the study of alpine grassland ecosystems according to various themes (ecology, physiology, soils, water, snow, physics and atmosphere, geology, landscapes, social sciences....).
The platform provides the following services to scientists:
- An in situ ecosystem experimentation service;
- Instrumentation for the long-term monitoring of these ecosystems and the in situ measurement of environmental parameters;
- Devices and tools for collecting samples and data on the ecosystems studied.
