Laboratoire d'études en géophysique et océanographie spatiales
LEGOS (Laboratory of Space Geophysical and Oceanographic Studies) is a joint research unit (UMR5566) under the auspices of CNES, CNRS, IRD and UT3 at the Midi-Pyrénées Observatory in Toulouse (France).
The LEGOS research and teaching scientific fields include oceanography and the water cycle in the broadest sense, with the physics of the oceanic, hydrological, cryospheric and atmospheric components, including coastal and climatic components, as well as marine biogeochemistry and geochemistry.
In addition, several Observation Services and working groups allow the lab know-how to be shared, capitalised and disseminated.

JPI Climate & JPI Oceans Joint Transnational Call on the Next Generation Climate Science in Europe for Oceans
Oceans play a key role in the climate system and are also affected by climate change. As confirmed by the IPCC special report on ocean and cryosphere, ocean dynamics are a major modulator of weather and climate including future trends and extremes. However, there are still uncertainties in the understanding and quantification of key climate-ocean interactions and the ocean’s buffering capacities for absorbing heat and CO2. This joint call aims to address these uncertainties.
