Welcome to scientific training and events

  • Initial training (OSU Pytheas, IPSL, OVSQ and participating courses): 70 students / 1 week per year

Seven university courses in six national institutions are hosted at the OHP:

UVSQ – Paris Saclay: Master Arctic Studies, Master ICE (Climate-Environment Interaction)

UVSQ – Paris Saclay – Paris 11 – Paris Observatory: Master Planetology

Paris 6 – 7: Master OACOS (Ocean-Atmosphere), Master TTS (Telesensing and Space Techniques)

AMU: Master PHYSICS, Master SET (Earth Environment Sciences / Climate Cycles).

          – The first six take part in the SIMO (Measurement and Observation Introductory Course, website) initiated by IPSL in 2002 and coordinated since 2010 by I. Xueref-Remy. The entry into SIMO of Univ students. Lille is planned in collaboration with LOA/SNO PHOTONS (Ph. Goloub) from 2019. The majority of SIMO relies on CNAP staff participating in the OHP-GEO SI.

– The seventh is hosted since 2018 on 1 day (conferences and visit of the ICOS site (I. Xueref-Remy).

  • The OHP regularly welcomes trainees and PhD students (about 10 theses since 2010).

Theses in progress:

Le Du T., Study, observation and modelling of atmospheric dynamics in the MLT (Mesosphere Lower Thermosphere), University of Paris-Saclay.

 Summer schools (project funding):

– Carbon cycle, ICOS-NEON/FP7-COOPEUS, 10 jrs, 2014 – 2015 (https://carbonws2015.sciencesconf.org/)

– Soils and water, EU ERASMUS, 15 jrs , 2018 (https://www.uni-ulm.de)

 Opportunities to strengthen lessons:

– A LIDAR TP will soon be developed to strengthen our initial and ongoing training.

 Scientific events:

– Home of the Worskhop IR ATMO (spring 2015, 30 people, 4 days)

– Home Assembly TGIR ICOS-Fr 2018 (60 people, 3 days): https://icos-france.fr/article16/dezfrezfre

– Coming soon: celebration for the NDACC SNO of 40 years of LIDAR data and 30 years of SAOZ data at the OHP.

  • Communication strategy:

– A website dedicated to THE SI OHP-GEO activities has been specially developed (https://ohp-geo.obs-hp.fr/) and will be launched in May.

– Events (campaigns, training, conferences, etc.) are broadcast by the Pytheas Newsletter, monthly

– PLATE of the OHP-GEO SI being developed (for download via the sites SI OHP-GEO, OSU Pytheas, OVSQ…)

  • Spreading knowledge:

– Participations (ICOS and O3HP) in the GREC-SUD notebooks (PACA climate expert group) (www.grec-sud.fr)

– OHP visits and general public science conferences from April to October (approximately 7,000 visitors per year)

– Science Day: OHP’s annual participation (conferences, workshops).

  • Relationship with civil society:

-Station AtmoSud: public dissemination of data (https://www.atmosud.org/donnees/acces-par-station)

-GREC-SOUTH for the link science – society – political actors PACA (members: I. Xueref-Remy, T.Gauquelin)

-The OHP is integrated into submitted projects labelled by Regional (Cap Energies) and National (Advancity Cities – sustainable) projects: ANR COoL-AMm project, Region thesis (coord. I. Xueref-Remy).
