SeaFINE: Eddy-resolving South China Sea reanalysis

SEAFINE (SEAMOS-South Fine Grid Hindcast) is an Oceanweather JIP (Joint Industry Project) for development of wind, wave and 3D currents hindcast on a fine grid of the southern part of the South China Seas.

Terra Orbit AS provides 3D currents hindcast based on a data assimilative configuration of the HYCOM model. The model includes the following goodies:

- Nested configuration from a Indo-Pacific 1/3rd deg model to a 5-km high resolution model in the South China Sea.

- High-integrity SeaFINE wind forcing from Ocean Weather Inc. (QuickSCAT based)

- Tidal forcing at the boundaries of the nested HR model.

CarboChange: Changes in carbon uptake and emissions by oceans in a changing climate

CARBOCHANGE will provide the best possible process-based quantification of net ocean carbon uptake under changing climate conditions using past and present ocean carbon cycle changes for a better prediction of future ocean carbon uptake.

Results will be optimal process descriptions and most realistic error margins for future ocean carbon uptake quantifications with models under the presently available observational evidence. The project will deliver calibrated future evolutions of ocean pH and carbonate saturation as required by the research community on ocean acidification in the EU project EPOCA and further projects in this field. The time history of atmosphere-ocean carbon fluxes past, present, and future will be synthesised globally as well as regionally for the transcontinental RECCAP project.

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.

Area of Expertise: 
statistics

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
