Raquel Somavilla

Raquel Somavilla is a Senior Scientist at the Spanish Institute of Oceanography (IEO, Santander). As oceanographer, she is particularly interested in the study of ocean processes from its surface to deep waters thousands of meter below, and how they affect our climate and processes of biogeochemical nature.

About IEO

The Spanish Institute of Oceanography is fully dedicated to marine science research, especially in relation to scientific knowledge of the ocean. The IEO is committed to address the challenges facing the ocean for the benefit of society and is also an advisory institution on oceanographic research, ocean health and conservation and fish stock management for the Spanish government.

Our action for climate change

The IEO has a long tradition in observing the marine environment, its physic-chemical characteristics and biological communities. We have pioneered the creation of time series networks (some of them are among the longest in Europe), which provide us with robust and systematic data to study climate change and its effects. The baselines obtained from these studies are instrumental for the assessment of climate change, enhancing our ability to detect and forecast risks.
