Pleistocene tufa (La Celle, Seine-et-Marne) :
Preservation and development of a quaternary site for the general public.
The “TUF de La Celle”, known by the scientists since the XIXth century, is an exceptional witness of the interglacial stage 11. A multidisciplinary group led its scientific study in 2003. In 2010, the site was declared Natural Space and developed for the general public by agreement with the Vernou-La Celle municipality and the Seine-et-Marne General Council. This operation was supported by AFEQ-CNF INQUA.
