NATIONAL STRUCTURING

RI OZCAR

OZCAR is the French Research Infrastructure for the observation of the critical zone gathering about twenty national observing services, observatory of research in environment and other observatories among which OHM-CV, AMMA- CATCH, GLACIOCLIM and Draix Bléone piloted by the OSUG. In addition, the CRYOBS-CLIM Cryosphere Observatory, including SNO GLACIOCLIM and seasonal snowpack and alpine permafrost themes, is also piloted in Grenoble.

- OHM-CV : Mediterranean Cévennes-Vivarais Hydrometerological Observatory
- AMMA-CATCH : African Monsoon Multidisciplinary Analysis - Coupling the Tropical Atmosphere and the Hydrological Cycle
- GLACIOCLIM : Glaciers Observatory
- Draix Bléone : Observatory for the study of the critical zone
- Other Observatory : PERMAFRANCE : French permafrost observation network & CRYOBS-CLIM : long-term Observation and Experimentation System for Environmental Research

RI ACTRIS-FR

Part of the ocean observing activities, the atmosphere contributes to the ACTRIS-FR National Research Infrastructure. CLAP national observing services is a component of this infrastructure.



- CLAP : CLimate relevant Aerosol Properties from near surface observations

Theia land data services centre



This data pole will disseminate (at the end of 2019) the data of all observatories of the RI OZCAR
Data and Service for the Atmosphere



This data pole broadcasts the data of all observatories of the RI ACTRIS-Fr

EUROPEAN STRUCTURING

eLTER RI

The European research infrastructure eLTER, dedicated to the study of ecosystems and the environment, was included in the ESFRI roadmap in 2018. The French Research Infrastructures OZCAR and RZA are involved.

ACTRIS RI

ACTRIS is the European Research Infrastructure for the observation of Aerosol, Clouds and Trace Gases. IR ACTRIS-FR is the French component.
