Habilitation à diriger des recherches :

Les processus de surface à l'échelle globale et leurs interactions avec le climat

Soutenue le 10 Septembre 2003 : Les transparents.


Career Goal : To enhance understanding of the global environment and to predict its evolution and impact, using modern computer technology.


Current research activities :

Improve our understanding and ability to model land-surface/atmosphere interactions.

Study the influence of land-surface changes on the mean climate and its variability.

Try and predict the impact of climate change on land-surface processes.

Ongoing model developments :

ORCHIDEE = SECHIBA + STOMATE the land-surface scheme of IPSL.

IOIPSL the input/output library for all components of the IPSL climate model.

Project management :

AMMA-EU
This project aims to be better understand and predict the African monsoon. It is a 5 year project funded by the European Union.

Land-surface Processes and Climate Response (1995-1998) :
The aim of this project was to evaluate the uncertainties in current climate change predictions linked to land-surface schemes.

The PILPS-4c coupler :
The aim of the PILPS-4c coupler is to propose a general interface for land-surface schemes and general circulation models which describes all interactions between both systems and allows for plug-compatibility of the models.

GLASS : Global Land-Atmosphere System Study (chair : 1999-2003):
GLASS is a GEWEX project which aims to encourage the developments of a new generation of LSSs by coordinating their evaluation and inter-comparison, and applying them to scientific queries of broad interest.

GMPP : GEWEX Modelling and Prediction Panel (chair : 2003-2006).
