Sophie Bonnet is Director of Research at the Mediterranean Institute of Oceanology (MIO Aix-Marseille University, CNRS, IRD, University of Toulon). She has just won an exceptional European grant for an innovative research project that will examine the biological mechanisms of CO2 sequestration by the ocean,...

Last June, the 10th oceanographic campaign of the MOOSE network took place in the Mediterranean Sea. For more than a decade, the LOCEAN laboratory, the marine stations of Roscoff, Banyuls, Villefranche-sur-mer of Sorbonne University, the MIO laboratory and CEFREM have been involved in this Mediterranean...

The ocean is a climate regulator, mainly because it captures ⅓ of the carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted into the atmosphere each year. This phenomenon of "oceanic carbon pump" is due to a double process: a physical process and a biological process....

On 25 October, Ifremer, CNRS and IRD (Institut de Recherche pour le Développement) launched a digital world tour of ocean and climate sciences, called OneOceanScience, with the support of Thomas Pesquet but also the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Ocean and Climate Platform....

Glaciers around the world are melting at a record rate due to global warming. Recent studies have shown that global losses have accelerated in recent years, from 227 gigatonnes of ice lost per year between 2000 and 2004 to 298 gigatonnes per year between 2015...

An international team of scientists has unveiled analyses of the rise in Antarctic temperatures over the past 25 years. A study that sounds like a wake-up call....
