Catherine Jeandel studies marine geochemistry, one of the disciplines that contributes to understanding the functioning of the ocean and more particularly the interactions between continents and oceans. In the context of global change linked to human activity, it is essential to better quantify the fluxes of matter transferred between the compartments of the planet. This is part of the task assigned to the LEGOS Marine Geochemistry team.
Catherine Jeandel likes to talk about her passion as a researcher and oceanographer to all audiences, including those who are far from access to scientific culture. Thus, within the framework of the association “Les étoiles brillent pour tous”, she gives conferences in hospitals and prisons.
Nearly 140 publications in peer-reviewed journals, 5 books co-authored or co-edited including a teaching manual “La Géochimie Marine” (Eds Vuibert) and three collections of articles “Le Climat à découvert”, “L’énergie à découvert” and “L’eau à découvert” (Eds CNRS).

An ocean-climate equilibrium that had been stable for 8,000 years is being challenged by human activities. Maintaining that equilibrium calls for urgent reduction in carbon emissions. That’s the opinion of Catherine Jeandel, a geochemical oceanologist at the Laboratory of Space Geophysical and...
