The 2nd CROCO Users' Meeting

The 2nd CROCO Users' Meeting was held from September 13 to 15, 2023 at Fort Ganteaume in Marseille. The main aim of the meeting was to bring the CROCO community together and encourage interaction.

Our colleagues Camille Mazoyer and Crisyèle Chevalier were present.

An initiative of the IRD (Institut de Recherche pour le Développement) and resolutely cooperative between countries of the North and South, this training course was open to ten international students and scientists who came to discover or consolidate their skills in the use of the numerical hydrodynamic modeling tool "CROCO". CROCO is an ocean modeling system developed by scientists from a number of French research institutes.and apply it to their current research projects.

Loyal to Séolane for this second edition, the course brings together researchers from almost every continent. Carlos, for example, has come to learn how to model and thus try to understand the cause of the current drastic and problematic drop in oxygen concentration in the ocean off the west coast of Mexico. Estelle, a geologist, uses this modeling to understand the influence of ocean currents on sedimentation and the formation of underwater landscapes.
