MyOcean: Development and Pre-operational validation of GMES Marine Core Services

Ocean Monitoring and Forecasting; Providing Products and Services for all marine applications: Safety, Resources, Environment and Climate.

Objective

Within the Global Monitoring for Environment and Security program (GMES) and its Marine Service Fast Track , the European community consolidates past efforts in pre-operational ocean monitoring and forecasting capacity in Europe developped through precursor European projects as MERSEA, BOSS4GMES, GSE MARCOAST

MERSEA: Marine Environment and Security for the European Area

Developmenting a European system for operational monitoring and forecasting of the ocean physics, biogeochemistry, and ecosystems, on global and regional scales.

GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security) is a joint initiative of the European Commission and the European Space Agency, designed to establish a European capacity for the provision and use of operational information for Global Monitoring of Environment and Security. To support the development of the Ocean and Marine Applications component of GMES, the EC is funding the MERSEA integrated project.

My aim is to improve the stochastic framework for performing data assimilation, other interests include numerical ocean modelling (especially in the hybrid coordinates ocean model HYCOM) and statistics applied to environmental problems. My PhD has borrowed the method of "Gaussian anamorphosis" from the weaponry of geostatistics for further applications of sequential data assimilation into coupled physical-ecosystem models.

2001: PhD in geostatistics from the Ecole des Mines de Paris.

2002: Post-doc at NERSC
