Biografie (woord)

Daniel Schertzer is a professor at École des Ponts ParisTech, Université de Paris-Est, and Scientific Director of the Chair 'Hydrology for Resilient Cities', sponsored by VEOLIA Water. His research introduced multifractals and related techniques in hydrology, after having contributed to their theoretical developments in turbulence, in particular with the definition of a co-dimension formalism, the concepts of generalized scale invariance and universal multifractals. His work has covered many domains of geophysics and the environment, with a particular emphasis on atmospheric dynamics, precipitation extremes and remote sensing. His publications include two books and 115 ISI-indexed publications, which have received more than 4000 citations, and he is executive editor of the journal Nonlinear Processes in Geophysics, which he co-founded as well as the nonlinear geophysics divisions of European Geophysical Union (EGU) and American Geophysical Union (AGU). Professor Schertzer has been a union officer of the EGU and an officer of AGU committees and the International Association for Hydrological Sciences bureau. He is also vice-president of the French National Committee of Geodesy and Geophysics, and a member of the Higher Council of Meteorology (France).
