LAgrangian Transport EXperiment





PIs : Frédéric Diaz and Anne Petrenko (MIO)

Project founded by CNRS LEFE/IDAO/CYBER and Région PACA




Numerical simulation of the anticyclonic eddy Latex09 (potential vorticity [kg m–4s–1])


Objective : influence of submesoscale coupled physics – biogeochemistry on cross-shelf (coast-offshore) exchanges


Methodology : lagrangian strategy to follow a submesoscale eddy using lagrangian floats and an inert chemical tracer (SF6)

Multi-disciplinary project & multi-« tools » : Lagrangian floats, SF6, hull-mounted ADCP, moorings, satellite images, numerical modelling, gliders and, radars.


Site of study : Gulf of Lion, north-western Mediterranean sea
