Roxane TZORTZIS

PhD student in oceanography


Hello my name is Roxane Tzortzis. I am a french PhD student in physical and biogeochemical oceanography at the Mediterranean Institute of Oceanography (Marseille, France). I study the impact of physical processes occuring at fine scale, on the biogeochemistry in the Mediterranean Sea.
