Laurent Bopp

Laurent Bopp is a CNRS research fellow at the Institut Pierre-Simon Laplace in Paris. He is currently head of the geosciences department at the Ecole Normale Supérieure. He obtained his doctorate from the University of Paris in 2001. His research focuses on the links between climate, climate change and marine biogeochemistry. He was one of the first to use global climate models to study how carbon uptake by the oceans responds to increasing atmospheric CO2 and climate change, but also how anthropogenic climate change could affect marine productivity and ecosystems through ocean acidification and deoxygenation. He contributed to the last two IPCC assessment reports as a lead author for chapters on biogeochemical cycles and on the effects of climate change on marine ecosystems. He is the author of more than 200 scientific publications. He received the AGU Ocean Section Voyager Award in 2016, the Grand Prix des Sciences de la Mer from the French Academy of Sciences in 2019, and has been a member of the Academia Europaea since 2018.
