Séverine Fournier is a research scientist in the Ocean Circulation and Air-Sea Interaction group at JPL. She currently studies linkages of the ocean with the Earth water cycle, including land-sea exchanges using principally satellite sea surface salinity and temperature, as well as altimetry, ocean currents and ocean color measurements. She did her PhD at IFREMER, the French National Oceanographic Center on the relationship between sea surface salinity and optical properties in river plumes using satellite measurements. She joined JPL in 2015. She is a member of the NASA Ocean Salinity Science Team and a Deputy PI for the Arctic Salinity field campaign SASSIE .
