Professor at the Laboratoire d’Océanologie et de Géosciences (LOG) and responsible of the “physical oceanography, transport and remote sensing” team (http://log.univ-littoral.fr/oceano/index.html). I received my PhD in January 1999 in Physical Oceanography at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Laboratoire de Physique et Chimie Marines, Villefranche, France. My field of research, which is applied to both open ocean and coastal areas, includes radiative transfer, ocean optics, inverse methods, and ocean color remote sensing. I’m particularly interested in the study of the suspended marine particles dynamic, and for that purpose I have developed several methods to assess information about the nature of marine particles from space (size, concentration of particulate organic carbon, phytoplankton species in coastal areas), and conduct numerous laboratory and field researches to understand the coupling between light, turbulence and particles (http://log.univ-littoral.fr/Hubert-Loisel). I’m involved in the ocean group of the French space agency (CNES) scientific committee and in different international working groups in the ocean color field of research.
