Optics as a key to understanding rogue waves

vagues scélérates, rogue waves

Rogue waves are powerful waves that erupt suddenly. They are rare, but destructive. Above all, they are unpredictable. Surprisingly, researchers have been able to better understand these fascinating waves by studying similar phenomena in fiber optic lasers.   Before scientists began measuring and observing them, rogue waves had long been …


Environmental data: data science takes on the challenge

data science, pierre tandeo

From July 3 to July 7, a series of conferences was held on data science and the environment. The event, organized by IMT Atlantique, builds bridges between two communities between whom there has been little collaboration in Europe so far. Environmental data could benefit from new processing methods that could …


Ocean remote sensing: solving the puzzle of missing data

Ocean Remote sensing, data, IMT Atlantique

The satellite measurements that are taken every day rely greatly on atmospheric conditions, the main cause of missing data. In a scientific publication, Ronan Fablet, a researcher at Télécom Bretagne, proposes a new method for reconstructing the temperature of the ocean surface to complete incomplete observations. This reconstructed data provides …
