ICEMASA is a scientific joint venture established between South African and French institutions focusing on marine and atmospheric sciences. ICEMASA aims at promoting cooperation in various research topics, ocean circulation, ocean-atmosphere exchanges, marine biogeochemistry, marine ecosystems and fisheries, along the margins of Southern Africa (Atlantic and Indian oceans) and in the Southern Ocean. Quantitative approaches (incl. numerical modelling) form an important component of the programme. Human capacity development in ocean sciences is deeply embedded in the ICEMASA mandate
