My main expertise is in the multi-parametric study of physical, chemical and biological properties of « interface ice », be it “ice bedrock”, “ice-ocean” or “ice-atmosphere” interface. The objective is a better understanding of initial and boundary conditions of large ice masses (continental or marine), together with a comprehensive approach of the processes governing their interactions with the climate, more specially in the framework of the potential impact of mankind on future climate at a global scale.
