Welcome to the Physical, Littoral and Coastal Oceanography Group collection



Improving our knowledge of the ocean state and its predictability requires a thorough description of the physical processes that are involved in ocean dynamics through a large continuum of scales.

Investigating these processes at different scales in the ocean and at its upper and lower boundaries is the main objective of the OPLC research team at the MIO laboratory. Documenting the interactions between scales is a major focus of the team because such interactions are generally poorly understood and, thus, neglected or empirically represented in ocean models.

The perspective of scale interactions dictates the activities of our team, the members of which have skills that cover a wide range of fields in the areas of physical modelling and experimentation. In the context of global change, the environmental and societal applications of the aforementioned fundamental research take a growing role in the activities of the team, with a specific transverse thematic approach now devoted to this research at the MIO laboratory.
