Lidia Carracedo @IFREMER

I’m a physical oceanographer studying the ocean´s role in carbon cycle & climate.

About me

I am a researcher at the Laboratory of Physical and Spatial Oceanography (LOPS), Institut Français de Recherche pour l’Exploitation de la Mer (IFREMER, Brest, France). With a main observational basis, my research focuses on the large-scale ocean circulation and ocean carbon uptake and storage, with a special interest in studying the physical mechanisms shaping the carbon content in the North Atlantic Ocean.

Biography timeline

My initial stages in oceanography go back to the age of 18, when I started my degree in Marine Science. Since then, a continuous learning process and advocational efforts, together with quite a few changes of home, country and research institution, brought me here as a researcher @Ifremer.

You are my favourite place to be.
The profession I chose more than a decade ago.
I devote all my efforts and ideas to better understand your functioning. Most of my very best friends and my love, I met them thanks to you. I owe you so much. The ocean, my life.
