About ILICO...

Established in 2016, the Coastal Ocean and Nearshore Observation French Research Infrastructure (“ILICO”) is dedicated to observing and improving our understanding of seashore environments and coastal ecosystems. ILICO is a distributed infrastructure comprised of in situ observation networks deploying a wide range of instruments to sample and measure parameters at high and / or low frequencies. 

Long-term monitoring is essential to understanding and anticipating large-scale processes and phenomena that can impact coastal and littoral zones (such as quantifying the impact of extreme and / or intermittent events such as tsunamis or cyclones). The study of these environments is notorious for the challenges posed by spatial heterogeneity and temporal dynamics at nested scales. 

ILICO is a network of 8 established observation networks COAST-HF, CORAIL, DYNALIT, MOOSE, PHYTOBS, ReefTEMPS, SOMLIT, SONEL (and BENTHOBS, applying for national observation network recognition). 

It’s also a pluri-disciplinary network of over 50 French laboratories involved in coastal and nearshore scientific research (lab correspondants work together on priority actions).
