Charter of expertise by the Académie des sciences

December 2012

As described in Articles 2 and 3 of its Statutes (see Annex 1), one of the missions of the Académie des sciences is to study and make recommendations on scientific and technical issues. It may carry out expertises when the nature of the question addressed to it, or taken up on its own initiative, justifies it. It should be noted that not all notices and publications by the Académie constitute an expertise according to the definitions in Annex II [...]

copyright Illustration Vue sous-marine des mésocosmes mis en place lors de la mission DUNE 1 (A DUst experiment in a low Nutrient, low chlorophyll Ecosystem) en juin 2008. Cette mission consiste à fixer deux groupes de trois mésocosmes (enceintes expérimentales) de 33 m³ par 25 mètres de profondeur, avec balisage en surface pour la navigation dans la baie d'Elbo, dans la réserve de Scandola en Corse. Quatre mésocosmes sont fertilisés avec des poussières du Sahara, les deux mésocosmes restants servant de référence. Le but de la mission est de mesurer l'influence des apports atmosphériques sur le milieu marin (bactéries et phytoplancton) dans une zone protégée de la pollution.
