Tristan Petit's picture

Tristan Petit

Postdoctoral Fellow

I am a physical oceanographer interested in increasing our knowledge of marine environment from optical modelling and measurements. In the past, I have been using multi/hyper-spectral remote sensing data taken at different levels (satellite, airborne, in-situ) for characterizing benthic and pelagic environments of coastal mid-latitude and tropical areas. My current research is about determining the optical conditions occurring in the Barents Sea, and more specifically (i) the link between sea-ice physical and optical characteristics and (ii) the specificities of the Inherent Optical Properties (IOP) of the Northern Barents Sea water.
