  1. Welcome to ICM !

  2. Marine Biology and Oceanography Renewable Marine Resources Physical Oceanography Marine Geology 84 members 44 members 4 departments 26 members 17 members

  3. Physical Oceanography Department at ICM 26 members: 6 Researchers from Staff 8 Researchers under contract and post-docs 8 PhD students 4 Technicians and support people Head: E. García-Ladona Research lines: • circulation in the western Mediterranean sea • Eastern North Atlantic dynamics • oceanographic instrumentation • data acquisition and processing • theoretical work in geophysical fluid dynamics • mesoscale vortex dynamics, from model & data • multifractal analysis of satellite oceanic images • retrieval algorithms to evaluate salinity from space • large scale numerical modelling and data assimilation • operational oceanography

  4. Research Topics: Mediterranean vortices observed by altimetry Isern-Fontanet et al., JPO 2006

  5. Research Topics: Maximum Singularity Streamfunction Turiel et al., Phys. Rev. Letters, 2005

  6. Other Topics:CANOA project – Eastern North-Atlantic dynamics PI: J.L. Pelegri

  7. Other Topics: vortex dynamics PI: A. Viudez

  8. Participation to the preparation of SMOS satellite mission PI: J. Font Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity Mission R Activities: • SMOS retrieval algorithms for salinity • North Atlanticnumerical simulations • Impact of SSS data assimilation D+T Activities: • Design and test of Lagrangian drifters to measure SSS. • Development and validation of algorithms for Level-3 and Level-4 products.  SMOS Barcelona Expert Center (BEC)
