Limnology and oceanography

Limnology and oceanography

The oceans cover more than 70% of the earth’s surface. Surveillance and monitoring of our oceans is essential and done through remote sensing of water main parameters such as: temperature, salinity, phytoplankton concentration… The Cartel is equipped with a laboratory specialized in the study of phytoplankton and its optical properties. […]

Cryosphere study

Cryosphere study

Climate change is transforming the Arctic landscape. The overall rise in temperature affects some regions more and the impacts are varied: permafrost reduction, surface albedo variations from snow cover, wildlife, monitoring changes in the accumulated water in catchment areas. The study of snow cover is also extremely important from the […]

Urban environmental study

Urban environmental study

The modification of rural and urban landscapes forces the rapid updating of useful information and maps for these territories. This update is used to support informed decision-making in areas such as land use planning, road safety, urban and interurban transportation. Lynda Bellalite (spatial planning, urban planning, road safety) Kalifa Goïta […]

Environmental Risks and Human Security

Environmental Risks and Human Security

Extreme weather events have been more frequent in recent years. Whether or not they are caused by climate change on a global scale, these events sometimes lead to disasters that must be managed. Meteorology is not the only area with which a risk measure is associated. Environmental and atmospheric pollution, […]

Ecosystem Study

Ecosystem Study

Exploitation of land resources is causing increasing pressure on forest, wetland, agricultural and marine (or lake) environments. The Nordic environment is no exception. Whether for oil, transport or sovereignty issues, our specialists are there to help with the acquisition, understanding and analysis of basic knowledge about these environments. Richard Fournier […]

Atmosphere Study

Atmosphere Study

The study of the atmosphere is essential for monitoring the displacement and characterization of gases and aerosols. Various international summits have taken place on climate change on a global scale. The acquisition of knowledge in these areas is still of great importance as greenhouse gases and various atmospheric pollutants and […]
