Morphogenèse holocène, géosystèmes et anthropisation sur la montagne Sainte-Victoire

Abstract : This paper is based on the sedimentological and geochemical study of ten sections or drillings made in the Sainte-Victoire mountain piedmonts. It confirms the existence of a prehistoric holocene low terrace that as been probably cut down from Subboreal. After the relatively stable Roman period phase, the medieval very low terrace built up; the following cutting down phase is badly dated. The complex interplay of anthropisation is not perceptible before the High Roman Empire period but morphogenesis remains controled by the subtle fluctuations of the climate, in particular by intensity and seasonnal distribution of rain.
