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.

Research Interests:

  • Changes in ocean oxygenation.
  • Global change, ocean acidification and carbon cycle.
  • Influence of ocean physics on biological activity and biogeochemical fluxes.
  • Climate modeling, ocean small-scale (1 to 100 km) modeling.
