Hervé Claustre is CNRS Senior Scientist at LOV. In 2004, he led the BIOSOPE project dedicated to the exploration of the poorly known waters of the South Pacific Subtropical Gyre. Since then, he focuses on the development of new observational techniques based on gliders and profiling floats. He is presently the co-chair of the international BGC-Argo program (http://biogeochemical-argo.org) whose main objective is the operation of a sustained array of profiling floats supporting the global observation of marine biogeochemistry in the context of an ocean under increasing anthropogenic pressure. He has contributed to more than 160 articles in international peer-reviewed journals. He was awarded the CNRS silver medal in 2005 and two advanced grants from the European Research Council (2010: http://remocean.eu; 2019: REFINE) for the development of breakthrough robotic observational approaches. He is increasingly involved in projects dedicated to promote Ocean Literacy.
