1 1 National Institute for Earth Sciences and Astronomy (INSU) Institut National des Sciences de l’Univers 3, rue Michel Ange – Paris Cedex 16 (France)

2 2 Functions  Coordinating and programming research  Managing infrastructures and observation networks  Organizing scientific foresights General presentation of INSU Scientific objective  Observing the Earth and Universe at every scale and understanding their evolution INSU is one of the 10 institutes of CNRS (National Centre for Scientific Research)

3 3  4 Scientific Sections  Astronomy & Astrophysics  Earth Sciences  Ocean & Atmosphere  Continental Surfaces and Interfaces  1 Technical Division  7 vessels, 2 aircrafts, balloons, instrumentation  2 specific targeted geographical areas: Mediterranean Basin (MISTRALS) & Arctic General presentation of INSU Complementarity with French universities and partner organisations

4 4 Means and Structure  8500 scientists, engineers and technical staff working in INSU structures :  80 joint research units (laboratories) in France  25 observatories (OSU) in France  3 international units (Argentina, Canada, Chile) General presentation of INSU Key INSU’s personnel distribution map

5 5 Geographical distribution of INSU international cooperations Earth Sc. Astro. CSI Key

6 6 Ocean & Atmosphere Research Areas  Dynamics of the Ocean and the Atmosphere and their Interaction  Atmospheric Chemistry  Marine Biogeochemical Cycles  Climate Evolution and Variability Means : ~25 laboratories / 1800 scientists and technical staff

7 7 Integrated approach towards planetary environmental changes at global and regional levels  Ocean:  EUR-OCEANS Consortium on marine ecosystems  IMBER (Integrated Marine Biogeochemistry and Ecosystem Research)  GMES contribution : MERCATOR / MyOcean  Atmosphere:  European infrastructure project: ICOS-IAGOS (CO2 and green house gases measurements)  International program: MISTRALS Mediterranean sea  GMES contribution : PREV’AIR/ MACC (atmospheric composition) Ocean & Atmosphere
