    In the framework of the SNO/SOERE MOOSE (Mediterranean Ocean Observing System on Environment https://www.ir-ilico.fr/Les-reseaux-elementaires/Fiches-d-identite-des-reseaux-elementaires/MOOSE ) program, the Mediterranean Institute of Oceanography is operating coastal High Frequency Surface Wave Radars (HF radar) on the North Western Mediterranean coast. This activity is also supported by the following European Research Infrastructure Jerico-Next (https://www.jerico-ri.eu), and Intereg MED programs as Impact and Sicomar +. HF radar provide high resolution (3­-5 km), synoptic view of surface currents from the shore up to 80 km off shore at hourly time scales. The measurement principle is based on the Doppler effect created by an additional current on the intrinsic speed of the waves selected by radar-sea interactions, called Bragg waves, having a wavelength of half that of the radar e.m. waves and propagating in the axis of observation (radial currents). A single radar scans the sea in azimuth and determines the radial components of the current at each adjacent cell along each azimuth. Two separate radars for the same area from different angles then collect the information necessary for mapping vector current from the combination of the two sets of radial components. The HF radar data set is made of monthly averaged surface currents, geo-referenced on cartesian lon/lat coordinates. The radial velocities maps are provided applying a Direction Finding technique (instead of traditional Beam Forming) not only to the full array of antenna but also to subarrays made of a smaller number of sequential antennas, a method which we refer to as "antenna grouping". Radials from Peyras-Peyras and Porquerolles-Benat are computed to reconstruct the vector field.

    OBJECTIF – Mesures des flux de matières d’origine atmosphérique en mer Méditerranée dans le cadre du réseau MOOSE Mesures en réseau avec cap Béar et cap ferrat Le milieu marin est de plus en plus soumis à l’influence anthropique, très directement sur la frange littorale, mais également au large par les retombées atmosphériques qui peuvent se propager très loin. La Méditerranée étant une mer oligotrophe, c’est-à-dire pauvre en élément nutritifs, tout apport d’éléments peut être un facteur de développement biologique significatif. Par contre l’apport de contaminants et de polluants par voie atmosphérique peut être un facteur perturbant ou inhibant l’écosystème. Le site du Frioul offrant l’opportunité de quantité les retombées atmosphériques dans la zone côtière, le Service d’Observation du MIO a proposé d’utiliser ce site pour installer des collecteurs de retombées atmosphériques. Collecteur de retombées atmosphériques sèches et pluies (MTX Italia) installé sur une plateforme dans l’enceinte du sémaphore de Pomègues Un collecteur de type MTX permet de récupérer les retombées sèches et les retombées humides (pluies) séparément. Parallèlement, un système de pompage en continu des aérosols a été mise en place dans la pièce supérieure du sémaphore. Il est composé de pompes à vide reliées à un compteur qui aspire en continu l’air qui est filtré sur un filtre disposé à l’extérieur. La collecte des échantillons est assurée chaque semaine par un opérateur du MIO. Par ailleurs le MIO assure le traitement et l’analyse de la matière récoltée. Les éléments suivants, source de fertilisation du milieu marin sont déterminés : - Azote total - Phosphore total - Carbone total - Formes solubles de l’azote (nitrate, nitrite, ammonium) - Formes solubles du phosphore (orthophosphates) - Formes particulaires de l’azote, du phosphore et du carbone.

    Le projet interdisciplinaire UECOCOT vise à développer des outils d'aide à la gestion durable des activités minières afin de permettre la meilleure cohabitation possible entre dynamique naturelle des environnements (et leur capacité de résistance aux dommages et de résilience) et les activités humaines (industrielles ou non). L'objectif global du projet est de répondre à la question " comment adapter , à un coût socio-économique acceptable, les activités minières pour que leur impact reste compatible avec la durabilité des écosystèmes côtiers et littoraux". Pour atteindre un tel objectif, le projet UECOCOT repose sur une approche multi-sites ayant des impacts miniers différents. Dans le Pacifique sud, le site choisi est le lagon de Koné (Nouvelle-Calédonie) à proximité duquel s'est implanté une mine de nickel et touché par des apports de particules riches en éléments métalliques (Ni, Cr, Co, Mn) issues de l'altération des massifs miniers latéritiques développés sur des péridotites. C'est dans ce cadre qu'a eu lieu en février 2018 une campagnes océanographique multidisciplinaire dans le lagon de Koné dont l'objectif était d'acquérir des informations sur : i) les flux hydrodynamiques et biogéochimiques entre la côte, le lagon et l'océan et les connectivités au sein même du lagon, ii) l'état écologique du lagon et son fonctionnement End to End (hydro-bio-géochimique) , iii) les apports miniers directs ou indirects (avec un focus sur les métaux) et leur impact sur le fonctionnement biogéochimique. L'ensemble des résultats acquis doit permettre de valider un modèle numérique de biologie intégrant les aspects physiologiques et comportementaux des organismes (plancton et benthos) liés à la contamination du milieu et à la circulation hydrodynamique au sein du lagon. Il doit en particulier aboutir à une meilleure compréhension du rôle de la barrière récifale sur la régulation hydrodynamique et ainsi permettre d'affiner les prévisions en terme de contamination du lagon suite à une modification de la structure récifale sous l'effet conjugué de contraintes anthropiques et climatiques. Ce projet s'inscrit dans le réseau international AMEDEE (Activité Minière, Environnement, Développement Economique, Ethiques) qui regroupe les programmes de R&D de 40 institutions scientifiques (Colin, 2016)

    As part of the EUREC4A-OA project (H. Bellenger, S. Speich, LMD), which is the French oceanographic component of the larger EUREC4A field experiments, the “flux mast” national instrument was installed on the Reseach Vessel R/V Atalante from Genavir. The flux mast holds instruments that measure atmospheric turbulence and meteorological variables. The collected data are used to estimate the turbulent fluxes of momentum and heat at the air-sea interface. Specifically, the flux mast instruments measure air pressure, air temperature, humidity, air refraction index, H2O, the three components of the wind vector, and the upward and downward solar and infrared radiation fluxes. The fluxes calculated are the latent and sensible heat fluxes, and the friction velocity. DOI : https://www.seanoe.org/data/00661/77341/

    "Towards an integrated prediction of Land & Sea Responses to global change in the Mediterranean Basin" The LaSeR-Med project aims at investigating the effects of climate change and of mediterranean population growth on some major indicators of the Mediterranean Sea (primary production, carbon export, zooplankton biomass available for small pelagic fishes, pH, dissolved oxygen) using and integrated model encompassing a socio-economic model, a continental model of agro-ecosystems, and a physical ocean-atmosphere model coupled to a biogeochemical model of the ocean. Last, a model for the widespread species of jellyfish Pelagia Noctiluca (Berline et al., 2013) uses biogeochemical outputs as food forcing for the jellyfish. In this project, our first aim was to investigate the large-scale and long-term impacts of variations in river inputs on the biogeochemistry of the Mediterranean Sea over the last decades (see Pages et al., 2020a). This interdisciplinary project provided the framework for joint discussions on each of the sub-models that constitute the integrated model, namely the socio-economic model (Ami et al., in prep., Mardesic et al., in prep.) created ex nihilo by researchers from AMSE, INRA and GREQAM, the continental agro-ecosystem model LPJmL (Bondeau et al., 2007) worked on at IMBE so as to include the nitrogen and phosphorous cycles in the frame of the present project, and the ocean biogeochemical model Eco3M-Med developed at MIO (Baklouti et al., 2006; Alekseenko et al. 2014, Guyennon et al., 2015; Pagès et al., 2020a), forced by ocean physics, either using the ocean model NEMO-Med12 forced by atmosphere at IPSL (simulation NM12-FREE run with the NEMO-MED12 model and used for our hindcast simulation, see below) or a coupled ocean-atmosphere model at CNRM (physical forcing provided by CNRM-RCSM4, see below). Details on simulation NM12-free: The historical simulation used in this work is referred to as the NM12-FREE (no reanalysis no data assimilation) which started in October 1979 and ended in June 2013 (Hamon et al., 2016). It has been run with the general circulation model NEMO in its regional configuration NEMO-MED12 based on a horizontal resolution of 1/12 de degree (6.5 to 8 km cells) and a 75-level vertical resolution (of 1 m width at the surface to 135 m at the seabed). For this simulation, runoff and river inputs in the NM12 domain came from the inter-annual data of Ludwig et al. (2009) and the atmospheric forcing was based on the dynamical downscaling of the ERA-INTERIM reanalysis, i.e. ALDERA which has a 12 km spatial resolution and a 3 h temporal resolution. More details on the NM12-FREE simulation are given in Hamon et al. (2016).

In this project, our aim was first to investigate the large-scale and long-term impacts of variations in river inputs on the biogeochemistry of the Mediterranean Sea over the last decades (see Pages et al., 2020a). In the second phase, a climate scenario (RCP8.5) alone (Pages et al., 2020b) or combined with a “land-use” scenario derived to ensure the same level of food availability as today in 2050 have been run to investigate its effect on these indicators and to analyze the observed changes on the structure and the functioning of planktonic food web. This interdisciplinary project provided the framework for joint discussions on each of the sub-models that constitute the integrated model, namely the socio-economic model (Ami et al., in prep., Mardesic et al., in prep.) created ex nihilo by researchers from AMSE, INRA and GREQAM, the continental agro-ecosystem model LPJmL (Bondeau et al., 2007) worked on at IMBE so as to include the nitrogen and phosphorous cycles in the frame of the present project, and the ocean biogeochemical model Eco3M-Med developed at MIO (Baklouti et al., 2006; Alekseenko et al. 2014, Guyennon et al., 2015; Pagès et al., 2020a), forced by ocean physics, either using the ocean model NEMO-Med12 forced by atmosphere at IPSL (simulation NM12-FREE run with the NEMO-MED12 model and used for our hindcast simulation, see below) or a coupled ocean-atmosphere model at CNRM (physical forcing provided by CNRM-RCSM4, see below). Details on the CNRM-RCSM4 model The CNRM-RCSM4 simulates the main components of the Mediterranean regional climate system and their interactions. It includes four different components: (i) The atmospheric regional model ALADIN-Climate (Radu et al., 2008; Colin et al., 2010; Herrmann et al., 2011) characterized by a 50 km horizontal resolution, 31 vertical levels, and a time step of 1800 s, (ii) the ISBA (Interaction between Soil Biosphere and Atmosphere) land-surface model (Noilhan and Mahfouf, 1996) at a 50 km horizontal resolution, (iii) the TRIP (Total Runoff Integrating Pathways) river routing model (Oki and Sud, 1998), used to convert the runoff simulated by ISBA into rivers (Decharme et al., 2010; Szczypta et al., 2012; Voldoire et al., 2013), and (iv) the Ocean general circulation model NEMO (Nucleus for European Modeling of the Ocean, Madec and NEMO-Team, 2016) in its NEMO-MED8 regional configuration (Beuvier et al., 2010). NEMO-MED8 is characterized by a horizontal resolution of 1/8° (grid cells size from 6 to 12 km), a vertical resolution of 43 vertical levels (cell height ranging from 6 to 200 m), and a time step of 1200 s. More details about the CNRM-RCSM4 model can be found in Sevault et al. (2014).

    The FUMSECK (Facilities for Updating the Mediterranean Submesoscale - Ecosystem Coupling Knowledge) cruise aimed at performing technological tests of several instruments exploited for the study of the (sub)meso-scale processes and dynamics (from 0.1 to 100 km for a lifetime from several days to several weeks). Three categories of tests have been performed. The first category is the study of the MVP (Moving Vessel Profiler) tracked instruments behaviour, in particular the MSFFFII (Multi Sensor Free Fall Fish, so called "big fish"). We focused on the rotative behaviour of the big fish during its falling and raising, the connectics between the instrument and the MVP cable, between the platform and the boat depth sensor, and between the platform and the PC used to analyse the data, hence testing the whole data acquisition chain. The second category concerns the exploration of several methods to access the measurement of the current velocities vertical component, using different ADCP (Hull-mounted ADCP, Fixed-depth and profiling L-ADCP and Sentinel V (5 beams), Free-Fall ADCP), a prototype of a vertical velocity profiler, and a glider. Finally, we experimented the release of a sample of biodegradable coloured micro-particles at 15m-depth and within a 1 hectare surface, their tracking with drifting buoys, their extraction by pumping and their detection by cytometry. The goal of this experiment was its feasibility, in order to use these micro-particules as tracers for the understanding of the physical part of the ocean biological Carbon pump. Data acquired during the campain are : - Biological oceanography : * B08 Phytoplankton 7 days Continuous sampling for cytometer analysis. 15m-depth sampling for cytometer analysis (3 samples). 30.04.2019 * B90 Other biological/fisheries meas. 1 days GoPro images for the injection, the following and the sampling of coloured micro-particles. 30.04.2019 - Physical oceanography : * D05 Surface drifters/drifting buoys 3 deployments Injection, following, and sampling of coloured micro-particles at 15m-depth. Deployment and recovery of lagrangian drifters anchored at 15m for water mass following. 30.04.2019 * D71 Current profiler (eg ADCP) 7 days Continuous Vessel-Mounted ADCP.

    JULIO (Judicious Location for Intrusions Observations) mooring is located close to the 100 m-deep isobath (around 5.25°E and 43.13°N), offshore Marseille. With its bottom-moored (300kHz) ADCP, it enables measuring horizontal currents (every 4 m and every ½ h) through the water column, and among others, identifying periods of exchange between the Northern Current and the continental shelf. It is one crucial component in the study of the coastal-offshore gradient from Marseille to the MOOSE 42°N5°E station, and potential covariances with the MIO radar and other MIO or international observing systems, as well as with the SOMLIT site (including also an ADCP) in the bay of Marseille. Moreover, with a bottom CTD, it can detect environmental anomalies in classical hydrographic data, useful for oceanographers. As one of the rare station at the interface between the continental shelf and offshore, it will allow to observe the long-term evolution of the Northern Current in the context of climate change and anthropogenic pressure, and its potential varying impact on the Gulf of Lion. The data are of course also crucial for modellers. Moreover they show a great potential when supplementing other MOOSE data (glider and radar). Timeserie #4 : - JULIO 4 - 07/12/2020 to 31/08/2021; JULIO (Judicious Location for Intrusions Observations) est situé à proximité de l'isobathe de 100 m de profondeur (environ 5,25°E et 43,13°N), au large de Marseille. Grâce à son ADCP (300 kHz), il permet de mesurer les courants horizontaux (tous les 4 m et toutes les ½ h) à travers la colonne d'eau et, entre autres, d'identifier les périodes d'échange entre le courant du Nord et le plateau continental. Il s'agit d'un élément crucial dans l'étude du gradient littoral-offshore de Marseille à la station MOOSE 42°N5°E, et des covariances potentielles avec le radar MIO et autres systèmes d'observation MIO ou internationaux, ainsi qu'avec le site SOMLIT (incluant également un ADCP) dans la baie de Marseille. De plus, avec un CTD de fond, il peut détecter les anomalies environnementales dans les données hydrographiques classiques, utiles aux océanographes. En tant qu'une des rares stations à l'interface entre le plateau continental et le large, elle permettra d'observer l'évolution à long terme du courant du Nord dans le contexte du changement climatique et de la pression anthropique, et son impact potentiel variable sur le Golfe du Lion. Les données sont bien sûr également cruciales pour les modélisateurs. De plus, ils présentent un grand potentiel en complément d'autres données MOOSE (planeur et radar).
