Edouard Leymarie is a research engineer at LOV since 2003. He led the technological development of several optical instruments for in-situ radiometric measurements such as a radiance camera (Antoine et al. 2013). He also developed the SimulO software, which provides an easy-to-use interface for performing optical simulations and shading calculations using the Monte-Carlo method. Since 2010, he has worked on the integration of new sensors on profiling floats. He currently leads the ProVal project (CNES) dedicated to the development of profiling floats devoted to the validation of ocean color satellite measurements. He also led, in collaboration with the Takuvik laboratory, the development of profiling floats for deployments in the Arctic Ocean in the framework of the French NAOS project. He is now involved in technological developments on profiling floats related to ERCs REFINE and Carbocean.
