AMAZOMIX campaign: Impact of physical processes on the marine ecosystem at the mouth of the Amazon
A multidisciplinary team of 17 French and Brazilian scientists will embark from August the 27th to October the 8th on board of the ANTEA, an oceanographic vessel of the French Oceanographic Fleet operated by Ifremer. From Cayenne, the ship will head to Brazilian waters and explore the mouth of the...
An acceleration of coastal overtopping around the world
The combination of sea level rise, tides, storm surge and waves has increased the overtopping of natural and artificial coastal protection by nearly 50% in the last two decades. This revelation comes from an international study coordinated by IRD, involving international partners. The study was...

A better estimate of water-level rise in the Ganges delta
For the first time, scientists have provided reliable regional estimates of land subsidence and water-level rise in the Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna delta. Depending on the region of the delta, water-level rise could reach 85 to 140 cm by 2100. The work, published in PNAS on 6 January 2020 by...

Research in Southern Africa
Research projects are defined and carried out jointly by the French researchers and their counterparts in Southern Africa.
Rivers, Climate and People
Earth’s major rivers are essential to development due to their resources and transportation potential.
The Ocean Resources research teams take an integrated approach to marine development research, particularly focussing on processes that affect the intertropical zone.
