A team of 4 researchers from the SIROCCO group of the Laboratoire d’Aérologie (Observatoire Midi-Pyrénées, Toulouse) came to the USTH to train 8 young researchers from the USTH, IMER, STI and HUS to use the SYMPHONIE ocean model. This training has been organized as part of the HILO (Hanoi International Laboratory of Oceanography, Marine Herrmann, LEGOS, IRD) project, funded by the French Embassy.
