Francisco Campuzano


Oceanographer & Numerical Modeller

Francisco Campuzano is an oceanographer formed in the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Spain) with a PhD in Environmental Engineering from Instituto Superior Técnico (Portugal) and an M.Sc. in Estuarine and Coastal Management and Science at the University of Hull (U.K.). He has been involved in more than 20 research projects at the European, national and regional level in different areas as assessing ecological status, socioeconomics and conceptual and numerical modelling. He is the co-chair of the ICES WGOOFE WG, he is member of three EuroGOOS Working Groups: IBI-ROOS, MONGOOS and Coastal WG and member of Copernicus Marine Service Champion User Advisory Group (CUAG). In recent times, he was involved in the development of oceanographic operational systems linking watersheds, estuaries and the open ocean (Brito et al., 2015; Campuzano et al., 2016; Campuzano, 2018). He has led several European projects of operational oceanography and environmental management (e.g., Atlantic Area iFADO & CMEMS-LAMBDA) and is the author/co-author of 21 scientific papers and 26 book chapters. He joined +ATLANTIC CoLAB in 2021 to develop operational modelling activities. Francisco Campuzano is a numerical modeller involved in operational oceanography for more than 12 years, he has been delivering continuously regional and local models with added value for end-users and national stakeholders in Portugal. He participates in the EDITO-Model Lab project by contributing for the engagement of intermediate and end-users. He is also preparing their own national applications to be incorporated in the European Digital Twin of the Ocean. He is also leading the EMODnet physics river node to provide near real time river data at the EU scale.
