UMI-IFAECI was implemented to strengthen France-Argentina scientific collaboration on a research agenda oriented to better understand, simulate and predict climate variability and change, as well as their impacts in southern South America and surrounding oceans.
UMI-IFAECI research areas includes: climate variability and change in southern South America; statistical methods for climate studies; role of the Andes in whether and climate; numerical prediction and data assimilation; generation of climate information for application and adaptation; laser investigation and applications; South Atlantic studies; physical processes at meso-scale; analysis and simulations of the La Plata River.
