Think tank

IPSL gathers 6 laboratories (LATMOS, LISA, LMD, LOCEAN, LPMAA, LSCE) whose research topics concern the global environment. These laboratories are developing a common strategy for the study of the Earth System as a whole and for the study of other objects in the solar system. Its main objectives are: - To understand the dynamical, chemical and biological processes at work in the oceans and in the atmosphere, and the processes of exchange of matter and energy between the atmosphere, oceans and biosphere, and in particular to understand the water and carbon cycles - To understand the natural climate variability at regional and global scales, together with the past and future evolution of our planet - To understand the impacts of human activities on the ozone layer and on the climate, and to predict climate at seasonal and inter-annual scales (monsoon, El Niño, North Atlantic Oscillation) and the horizon of the end century - To use the skills built on the terrestrial environments to explore other planets
