Remotely-Sensed Biogeochemical Cycles in the Ocean
remOcean project funded by the European Research Council (2010-2016)

remOcean leaves a legacy

data, publications and outreach


Direct access to acquired remOcean data routinely updated by still active floats


Publications resulting from data analysis and synthesis are regularly posted


Outreach initiatives « adopt a float » and « mon ocean et moi » launched by remOcean


Based on state-of-the-art remotely-operated observation techniques (profiling floats and satellites) remOcean was a project, funded in 2010 by the European Research Council, that aimed at addressing the causes of variability in the biological oceanic pump with a strong focus on the role of phytoplankton production. remOcean was a highly regarded program that contribute to the emergence of the international Biogeochemical-Argo program.
