Fluid Dynamics, Oceanic and Atmospheric Sciences

The focus of the research carried out by the Fluid Dynamics, Oceanic and Atmospheric Sciences research group is on the highly coupled components of the climate system; including the atmosphere, the oceans (both coastal and large-scale), the cryosphere, and the land-surface. The group also has expertise in the ocean carbon cycle and ocean ecosystems modelling.
