Pablo Fernandez Fernandez
PhD student (2022-; ENS/Sorbonne Université) addressing the air-sea interactions at the ocean fine-scale in the Northwest Tropical Atlantic as observed during the EUREC4A-OA field experiment and as simulated by high-resolution coupled ocean-atmosphere numerical simulations run at LEGOS by the group of Dr. Lionel Renault.
PhD student (2023-; ENS) addressing the qualification and quantification of the upper ocean fine-scale dynamics as observed from space (different satellite missions, including SWOT), from field experiments and as simulated by high-resolution numerical simulations.
PhD student (2023-; ENS Lyon) addressing the phenomenology governing the ocean eddy mesoscale coherence. Yan is tackling this from in situ observations, a theoretical framework and a hierarchy of numerical models
