Scientific interests

Numeric modelling of past, present and future high-latitude climate, in particular :

  • Ice sheet climate : surface mass balance and near-surface climate and role of ice sheets in regional and global climate
  • Surface/atmosphere interactions and climatic effects of high latitude lakes and wetlands, permafrost, vegetation and snow
  • Development of regional climate modeling methods

This modelling work is principally carried out with the LMDZ atmospheric general circulation model and the ORCHIDEE land surface model.
