Coastal Ocean Team

A research team (since 2016) around understanding the dynamics of the coastal ocean
A field of research at the interface between estuaries and coastlines on the one hand and the open ocean on the other
The coastal ocean:

  •     an area extremely rich in thermal, haline, bathymetric and biogeochemical contrasts,
  •     the site of intense dynamics on small scales of time and space, which govern most of the coastal-longshore exchanges, retention processes, vertical mixing and, ultimately, the ecosystem.

4 areas of scientific research

  •     Fine-scale dynamics and the coastal environment
  •     Extreme (or rare) events and climate change
  •     Dynamics of boundary layers
  •     Involvement in research support infrastructures
