Gael Forget, PhD

I work as a reseach scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) where I investigate oceanography and climate. As part of the Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences, my work focuses on ocean modeling and the analysis of global ocean data sets such as Argo profile collections, satellite records of sea level, or ocean color retrievals. I co-develop computer programs in various languages and carry out ocean state estimation using the MIT general circulation model in order to interpolate and interpret ocean observations. My scientific interests include: ocean circulation and climate variability; tracer transport and turbulent transformation processes; interaction of ecological, geochemical, and physical processes; global cycles of heat, water, and carbon; observational statistics; forward and inverse modeling.
