Department of Marine Biology and Oceanography: basic research on all aspects of planktonic and benthic marine ecology. 84 peopleDepartment of Renewable Marine Resources; 44 people; study of marine organisms (fishes, shells, cefalopods, molluscs), naturals and from a controlled production. Factors impacting the life cycle.Department of Marine Geology: sediment processes on the continental margin, over the shelf, at the coast, shelf ocean transfer; 17 peopleDepartment of Physical Oceanography; 26 people
Multifractal or multiaffine analysis is a promising new branch of methods in nonlinear physics for the study of turbulent flows and turbulentlike systems.Spontaneous generation of inertia gravity-waves.Ageostrophic motions
