Research Activities Since Nov.2014, I am working at SAMS on UK-OSNAP (Overturning in the Subpolar North Atlantic Programme) on the seasonal variability of the water masses and heat and salt transport in the eastern part of the subpolar gyre. I am essentially using ocean observations (altimetry, gliders, moorings) and I have responsibilities in the planning and execution of the UK glider and mooring programme.
Research Region 36, 2, 3,
Working languages English; French
