My research focuses on the marine carbon and oxygen cycle and its observational techniques. Actually I’m conducting autonomous measurements of oxygen and CO2 (and its isotopes) on board a commercial vessel crossing the North Atlantic (seasonal and interannual variability of CO2 fluxes). I’m also involved in eddy-covariance measurements, productivity estimates in the tropical Atlantic and new observational strategies like drifter, floats.
