Dr. Vincent Favier

Lecturer at IGE
Université Grenoble Alpes


Favier Vincent is Lecturer at the University of Grenoble Alps, and member of the Institut des Géosciences de l’Environnement at Grenoble since 2007. Favier’s research focuses on long term surface mass balance measurements and modelling with regional circulatin models in Antarctica.

He particularly looks at the impacts of atmospheric rivers on the extreme temperature, precipitation and melt. In this context, he coordinates the ANR-ARCA project, which aims to study the past, present and future climatology of atmospheric rivers in Antarctica. He also developed glacier studies in the Kerguelen Islands, along the Andes and in Antarctica. He is the head of the “C2H” team at the IGE (20 members) and the French SCAR (Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research) national representative in physical sciences. He participated in 12 field seasons in Antarctica and Kerguelen.
