French Contribution to EGO

In France , most of the research laboratories involved in glider activities are involved in EGO: LPO, LOV, LOCEAN , LEGOS and ENSTA . Presently activities are mainly related to process studies in research mode and also experience sharing in glider technology and mission operation.

Coriolis data center is involved in glider data processing in realtime and provision to glider data to the operational oceanography community. Delayed mode processing is done by the research laboratories and corrected data should be then integrated into Coriolis database when available.
