organisation profile

The LOCEAN (LABORATORY FOR OCEANOGRAPHY AND CLIMATE: experiments and numerical approaches) is a joint research unit of the University Pierre et Marie Curie, the National Museum of Natural History, the National Center for Scientific Research and the Institute of Development Research.
The core of LOCEAN is the study of ocean and climate variability. Regarding the first part, LOCEAN studies a broad spectrum of scales ranging from those of vertical mixing and internal waves to those of planetary motions, to further our knowledge of ocean dynamics and its impact on major chemical compartments (particularly carbon in inorganic and organic forms) in conjunction with the bio-geochemical cycles. In the second part, the laboratory focuses specifically on the role of the ocean on climate variability, particularly in the short scales ranging from interannual to century, both for the climate past, present and future. The laboratory has also recently engaged in studies of climate variability - society relations interacting with other communities (agronomy, economics, health).
LOCEAN is organized into six research teams:
- SURF (Exchanges in the surface layer: from the poles to the tropics)
-PHY-BIO-CAR (physical-biogeochemical-carbon coupling)
- Southern Boreal
- Teams VARCLIM "Tropical and Global Climate Variability" and RICLES "Regionalization and climate - environment - society interactions"
- PALEOPROXUS (Paleoclimate, proxies, process)
- Modeling and Advanced Statistics Methods (MMSA)
