Profiles in science
Profile of Gilles Reverdin, researcher at LOCEAN. Before he discovered oceans, this lover of deserts passed his thesis on the indian monsoon in 1980. He then discovered that oceans were the field of important studies too. He travelled a lot and worked in many places abroad, namely in Africa and the USA before he settled in France at LOCEAN (he is currently assistant director of the lab). He is also in charge of Coriolis research and development and supervises many students.
