BioSWOT-Med cruise : Interview with Andrea Doglioli


Andrea Doglioli, BioSWOT-Med’s Chief Scientist, explains the objectives of the campaign and how he and his collaborators will try to disentangle the plankton paradox in the Mediterranean Sea by studying fine scales in the ocean. Results from the campaign will provide insights on the physical-biological coupling relevant for most of the global ocean.

BioSWOT-Med is an interdisciplinary and international campaign! The researchers that will take part in the BioSWOT-Med cruise are affiliated to Université d’Aix-Marseille, CNRS, Sorbonne Université, Musée National d’Histoire Naturelle (France), CNR and OGS (Italy),  Thünen Institute (Germany), University of Arizona (USA) and University of Auckland (New Zealand). 

Moreover we collaborate with colleagues from SHOM, CEA, IFREMER, ULCO, Université Gustave Eiffel (France), CSIC (Spain), SZN (Italy), University of Bergen (Norway), UCSD, MBARI, NWRA and University of Washington (USA). 

These are more than 50 people involved in BioSWOT-Med. They work for important oceanography laboratories such as MIO, LOCEAN (France), ISMAR (Italy), IMEDEA, SOCIB (Spain), SCRIPPS (USA).
