Ocean, Atmosphere, Continental Surfaces
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
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
NATIONAL DATA POLE
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.
