We are involved in the developpement of several space (GOLF/SOHO, SODISM/PICARD) and ground based instruments (GROUND PICARD: SODISM II, MISOLFA).

METEOSPACE

Un nouveau projet en partenariat avec l’observatoire de Meudon d’un télescope H-alpha pour la surveillance de l’activité solaire à la fois pour la recherche et pour ses applications en météorologie de l’espace par le biais de la détection des phénomènes solaires rapides et transitoires.

GROUND PICARD (PICARD-SOL)

"GROUND PICARD" is a set of 4 ground based instruments which are operated at the Calern facility of the Cote d’Azur Observatory during the space mission PICARD .The goal is to measure the solar shape simultaneously from space and ground and to learn how to interpret ground measurements through a detail analysis of atmospheric effets. This project is a collaboration between LAGRANGE (OCA), LATMOS (IPSL) and CRAAG (Algiers) and is supported by the french spatial agency (CNES) as part of the PICARD mission.

GOLF / SOHO

L’instrument GOLF, embarqué sur la sonde SOHO depuis 1995, est dédié à l’étude de la structure interne du Soleil. 
Gerard Grec is GOLF project scientist and member of the Scientific committee, Janine Provost, Catherine Renaud and Thierry Corbard are members of the GOLF team
