La recherche française en océanographie côtière French research in coastal oceanography

Chardy Pierre

L'originalité du milieu marin côtier tient à deux traits essentiels : c'est une zone d'échanges privilégiée océan-continent-atmosphère mais aussi un milieu directement soumis à la pression des activités humaines.

Trade-wind waves and mud dynamics on the French Guiana coast, South America: input from ERA-40 wave data and field investigations

Gratiot, Nicolas; Gardel, Antoine; Anthony, Edward

The South American coast between Brazil and Venezuela is affected by longshore migrating mud banks derived from the fine-grained Amazon sediment discharge. Onshore mud migration prevails over shallow ‘bank' areas alternating alongshore with deeper ‘inter-bank' areas. The transport on the inner shelf...

Humboldt der Seefahrer und sein Marinechronometer : ein Beitrag zur Geschichte der Nautik und Meereskunde Humboldt the navigator and his chronometer : a contribution to the history of navigation and oceanography

Kortum, Gerhard

Kurz vor seiner Abreise nach Südamerika erwarb HUMBOLDT zur Ergänzung seiner Instrumentenausrüstung ein ganz besonderes Präzisions-Taschenchronometer, gefertigt von dem berühmten Schweizer Uhrmacher Louis BERTHOUD (1753-1813) mit der Fertigungsnummer 27. Dieser Zeitmesser ging, wie HUMBOLDT durch as...

Ecophysiological dynamic model of individual growth of Ruditapes philippinarum

Flye-Sainte-Marie, Jonathan; Jean, Fred; Paillard, Christine; Ford, Susan; Powell, Eric; Hofmann, Eileen; Klinck, John

A bioenergetics model of the Manila clam (Ruditapes philippinarum) was built to simulate growth, reproduction and spawning in culture and fishery field sites in Marennes–Oléron Bay (French Atlantic coast). The model is driven by two environmental variables: temperature and food supply. Food supply a...

Do river discharge rates drive the overall functioning of the pelagic ecosystem over the continental shelf of the Bay of Biscay (NE Atlantic)? A comparison of two contrasting years with special reference to anchovy (Engraulis encrasicolus L.) nutritional state

Bergeron, Jean-pierre; Delmas, Daniel; Koueta, Noussithe

In the 2000 and 2001 springtime periods, mesozooplankton samples were systematically taken during research cruises devoted to the study of the distribution and abundance of small pelagic fishes in the French part of the Bay of Biscay, NE Atlantic, continental shelf. Simultaneous activities of three ...

Biogeochemical modelling in the Bay of Seine (France): an improvement by introducing phosphorus in nutrient cycles

Guillaud Jean-francois; Andrieux-loyer Francoise; Menesguen Alain

As part of the French National Programme for Coastal Oceanography, this paper focuses on improvement of biogeochemical modelling in the: Bay of Seine (Eastern Channel), by introducing phosphorus in nutrient cycles. The Bay of Seine receives the Seine river, which exhibits very high nutrient concentr...

An eddy-permitting model of the Atlantic circulation: Evaluating open boundary conditions

Treguier Anne-marie; Barnier B; De Miranda A; Molines J; Grima N; Imbard M; Madec Gerard; Messager Christophe; Reynaud Thierry

As part of the French CLIPPER project, an eddy permitting model of the Atlantic circulation has been run for 22 years. The domain has open boundaries at Drake passage and at 30 degreesE, from Africa to Antarctica. The simulated mean circulation, as well as the eddy activity, is satisfactory for a 1/...
