Sandrine Guerlet

Research Fellow in Planetary sciences

Research interests

My research work focuses on the remote sensing of the Earth and planetary atmospheres. I am particularly interested in the study of atmospheric composition, thermal structure, meteorology and climate of various planetary atmospheres. To achieve these goals, I acquired expertise in the analysis of infrared spectroscopic data, the development of radiative transfer models and retrieval algorithms.

Current position & Projects

Since October 2014, I am a CNRS research fellow at the Laboratoire de Météorologie Dynamique (LMD). My research activities focus on the study of Saturn's and Jupiter's atmospheres, both from Cassini/CIRS data analysis and via the development of a new General Circulation Model, in collaboration with LMD researchers.
