The solid-liquid interaction processes regulate the mechanisms governing the availability of trace elements in liquid phase. In this paper, these processes have been studied through the use of the Rare Earth Elements (REE) since they are excellent tracers of geochemical processes. The purpose of the first part of this work was to study the reactivity of volcanic particulates during the interaction with synthetic seawater. The results show that apart from the dissolution, which is the main process, a surface adsorption process also occurs, probably on the surface of newly formed crystals. The supposed presence of these minerals is suggested by the temporal variation of the Y/Ho ratio, by SEM observations and XRD analysis. Finally the addition of ligand species to dissolved media does not increase dissolution rate of volcanic particles but modify the YLn distribution in liquid phase. In the second part of this work, the Rare Earth study was applied to a human system. These elements were used, in fact, to investigate the effects due to the interactions between the inhaled atmospheric particulate matter and the lung fluids (BAL), in people exposed to fallout of volcanic ash. The results suggest that YLn-phosphate co-precipitation occurs in lungs as a consequence of inhalation of volcanic particles and their interactions with lung fluids. This process is confirmed by thermodynamic and kinetic simulations indicating that crystallisation of YLn-phosphates and other authigenic phases occurs as a consequence of the soluble ash fraction dissolution. The combination of YLn fractionation in bronchial fluids can represent a potential tracer of exposure to atmospheric fallout

Cette thèse de doctorat traite du comportement géochimique de Zr, Hf et Terres Rares dans des environnements aqueux extrêmes. Les études ont été effectuées dans les eaux hyper-salines long de la faille de la Mer Morte (Israël), les eaux hyper-acides dans le système volcanique hydrothermal du Nevado del Ruiz (Colombie) et les eaux riches en CO2 du système volcanique hydrothermal de l'île de Pantelleria, en comprenant le lac alcalin “Specchio di Venere”. Haute appauvrissement en Terres Rares légères a été trouvé dans les eaux acides dominées par le sulfate où on a reconnu la formation d'alunite et jarosite. Certaines eaux long de la faille de la Mer Morte montrent des enrichissements en Terres Rares intermédiaires, causés par la dissolution des minéraux évaporitiques. Les grandes variations redox et de pH observées dans ces systèmes hydrothermaux sont la cause des anomalies de Eu et Ce. Les eaux sulfates acides (1 < pH < 3.6) se caractérisent par des relations de Zr/Hf sous-condritiques et des relations condritiques de Y/Ho. Les rapports de Zr/Hf augment à l'augmentation du rapport Cl/SO4 en suggérant un comportement différent de Zr et Hf. Contrairement aux eaux acides, les relations de Y/Ho et Zr/Hf dans les eaux proches de la neutralité avec valeurs de Eh positives augmentent vers des valeurs super-condritiques, en raison de l'élimination préférentielle par les oxyhydroxydes de fer, de l'Hf et Ho que de Zr et Y. Le distribution des Terres Rares, avec les rapports de Y/Ho et Zr/Hf du “Specchio di Venere” montrent l'interaction entre les particules atmosphériques qui viennent du désert du Sahara et le lac “Specchio di Venere”, démontrent qu'ils sont de traceurs géochimiques
