Goffart Anne
Dr, Aquapôle Director


Anne Goffart is a senior scientist with strong expertise in marine plankton ecosystem dynamics and ecology. Current interests focused on Antarctic and Mediterranean coastal areas and concern:

  • the control of marine plankton biodiversity and fish recruitment by physical, climatic, chemical and biological constraints,
  • the impact of climate change on plankton biodiversity and dynamics,
  • the development of tools to detect and predict changes in selected coastal ecosystems threatened by human activities and climate change.

In the Southern Ocean, Anne Goffart is actually involved in projects focusing on the Terre Adelie area.
