Recent and ongoing projects and activities

A few links to some projects and activities I am or recently was involved in :

  • IPCC : Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. I am currently a lead author of the chapter "Ocean, cryosphere, and sea level change" of the Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) which will be published in 2021.
  • LS3MIP : Land surface, snow and soil moisture MIP, a subproject of CMIP6
  • ESM-SnowMIP : A model intercomparison project aiming at improving the representation of snow both in global climate and in dedicated snow models, linked to LS3MIP
  • IMBIE2 : An international collaboration of polar scientists, providing improved estimates of the ice sheet contribution to sea level rise
  • ESA CCI Snow : The Snow_cci project aims to contribute to the understanding of Snow in the climate system by generating consistent, high quality long-term data sets that meet the requirements of the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS).
  • SCAR AntClim21 : The goals of AntClim21 are to deliver improved regional projections of key elements of the Antarctic atmosphere, ocean and cryosphere for the next 20 to 200 years and to understand the responses of the physical and biological systems to natural and anthropogenic forcing factors.
  • CliC : Climate and Cryosphere core project of the World Climate Research Programme. I was a co-chair of the CliC Scientific Steering Group from 2014 to 2017.
  • Permafrost Carbon Network : Co-funded by CliC, aiming at quantifying permafrost carbon reservoirs and improve our understanding of relevant physical and biological processes
  • APRES3 : An ANR project aiming at quantifying Antarctic precipitation, and improving its simulation in climate models
  • ASUMA : An ANR project aiming at better quantifying the Antarctic surface mass balance. French ITASE contribution
  • LMDZ : The Atmospheric General Circulation Model developed by LMD/IPSL
  • ORCHIDEE : The land surface model of IPSL
