BioSWOT-Med cruise : Interview with Anthony Bosse
Studying how ocean dynamics impact heat distribution and its evolution with climate change
Anthony Bosse is the leader of WP2 Physical Processes in the BioSWOT-Med campaign. He describes the different physical processes that will be studied during the campaign and the different sampling platforms used with the goal to understand how ocean dynamics from mesoscale (eddies and fronts of 10-50km) to dissipation scale (millimeter scale turbulence) impact the distribution of heat, its evolution with climate change, and how these processes influence the development of phytoplankton.
THE RESEARCH THEMES – Anthony Bosse is an oceanographer with a background in physics, which led him to combine the two disciplines to analyze observations carried out from research vessels or collected by autonomous platforms. The main focus of his research is to understand how the ocean dynamics from mesoscale (eddies and fronts of 10-50km) to dissipation scale (millimeter scale turbulence) impact the distribution of heat and its evolution with climate change, as well as the impact those processes can have on the development of phytoplankton. His research focuses on the two regions: the Mediterranean Sea and the Nordic Seas. He is a researcher at the Mediterranean Institute of Oceanography in Marseille and affiliated at University Aix-Marseille. During the BioSWOT-Med campaign is the leader of WP2 Physical Processes.
