Jean-Claude Gascard

Senior scientist for the French Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique CNRS since 1992.

Docteur d’Etat of University Pierre et Marie Curie UPMC since 1977, speciality Océanographie Physique Dynamique.

Jean-Claude Gascard started working in polar oceanography in 1976 on the Labrador Sea in cooperation with the Bedford Institute of Oceanography (Dartmouth, Canada) and contributed to the Marginal Ice Zone international Experiment (MIZEX) in 1983-1984. He has contributed to several major polar programs funded by the European Union such as the European Subpolar Ocean Program (ESOP 1 and ESOP 2) from 1993 until 1998, MAIA (Monitoring the Atlantic Inflow towards the Arctic) from 2000 until 2002 and ASOF (Arctic- Subarctic Ocean Fluxes) which started in 2003 and ended in 2005. He is past chairman of the Arctic Ocean Sciences Board (AOSB) and was member of the IASC steering committee in charge of the preparation of the International Conference for Arctic Research Program ICARP II in 2005. He was convenor of a polar session dedicated to Pan-Arctic long term variability at the European Geophysical Union (EGU) General Assembly in 2003, 2004 and 2005. His main interest concerns the interactions between subtropical and polar water masses leading to the formation of deep and abyssal waters (deep convection), thermohaline circulation, air-sea-ice interactions and the implication of the Arctic Ocean in Climate variability and Global Changes.
