Professor Laure Resplandy is a biogeochemical oceanographer. Her research goals are to understand how climate and ocean physics influence marine biogeochemistry and ecosystems and how these changes can in turn impact the Earth climate. Prof. Resplandy's approach is to design and develop numerical models (from ocean regions to global climate system) and statistical tools to interpret in-situ and satellite observations.
Climate change and global carbon cycle.
Changes in ocean oxygenation, oxygen minimum zones and coastal hypoxia.
Influence of ocean physics on ecosystems and biogeochemical fluxes.
Climate modeling, ocean modeling from small-scale (1-100 km) to large-scale.

An expansion of the world's largest minimum zone would further stress commercially important species and ecosystems.
The work of climate modelers informs public policy and influences strategies for mitigating risks and adapting to change.
