Foundation: 1995

Mission: A multidisciplinary research unit, its fields of investigation concern the study of our environment, focusing on deep-sea and coastal ocean physics, marine geochemistry and biogeochemistry, space hydrology and polar cap dynamics, with remote sensing from space and five observation services or networks as the preferred observation tool. LEGOS is involved both upstream (concept, algorithm) and downstream (calibration, validation, valorisation) of numerous satellite missions, especially altimetry. As a training unit, it contributes to undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate teaching in the PCA and SVT UFRs of the Paul Sabatier University, in particular through its participation in the Master Ocean-Atmosphere and Continental Surfaces, and in the SDU2E Doctoral School (Sciences of the Universe, Space and Environment).

Evolution of the institution

The following data gives a quick reading on the scientific performance in the last years. The research ranking refers to the volume, impact and quality of the institution's research output. The innovation ranking is calculated on the number of patent applications of the institution and the citations that its research output receives from patents. Finally, the societal ranking is based on the number of pages of the institution's website and the number of backlinks and mentions from social networks.

Compared to its context

The result of the evaluation of the institution can be compared to obtain a view of the country, the region to which it belongs and the institutions of the world, placing it in their respective positions.

Ranks by Subject area

We have divided the scientific output of the institution into 19 large areas of knowledge and the following table shows only the ranks in different territorial domains achieved by the institution in each of the areas. For an institution to have a presence in an area, it is necessary that it exceed in the last year a minimum output threshold equivalent to twice the percentage that this area represents in the world. If you need scientific indicators on these areas visit Scopus and/or SciVal
