One of the research actions taken in the field of torrential risks as part of the contract between the State and the Rhones-Alpes Region was the installation and monitoring of an experimental catchment area in which phenomena of torrential erosion and catchment area movements, dependent on the entire dynamics of the catchment area, were likely to be present. For this the catchment area of the torrent of l'Eglise on the slopes of the Arcs, Bourg-St-Maurice was chosen. This is right beside. the Ravoire torrent which experienced exceptional high water and torrential lava levels in 1981. The article presents the geographic context of the site, the equipment installed for the study, the research team and the scientific problem, and finally results of the study.
