PROJECT : Sea2Cloud-CNES

Scientific project

Sea2Cloud-CNES

How biology affect marine aerosols and in turn influence the atmosphere and climate

Principal Investigator(s) :

Karine Sellegri

Local Coordinator(s) :

Julia Uitz

Team(s) involved :

OMTAB

Members :

Raphaelle Sauzède
Based on an interdisciplinary approach, the Sea2Cloud project aims to investigate how the biogeochemical properties of the Southern Ocean waters impact the properties and fate of clouds over this region.
Sea2Cloud relies on several sources of fundings, among which an ERC grant (PI Karine Sellegri, LaMP). Members of the OMTAB team are involved in the Sea2Cloud CNES project. In this framework, they provide large-scale biological products (concentrations of chlorophyll and particulate organic carbon, phytoplankton community composition) in an attempt to evaluate the impact of biology on marine aerosols and, thereby, cloud properties with feedback to the Earth’s climate.
