Oceanography

Our oceanographers simulate the spread of different types of releases in water. For chemicals we simulate processes that result in a the substance being broken down or for instance the consumption of oxygen in the water. Some substances sink in the water column and we can simulate the spread of these and how they deposit on the ocean floor. Regarding debris from aquaculture installations (sea pens) we have developed a model that simulate spread in the water and deposits of the debris on the ocean floor.

We also offer models that simulate the effects of sediments from different industrial or governmental development projects in the coastal zone.

We also offer wave modelling. Wave height will vary with geographical area and is related to wind, distance to land in different directions and a range of other factors.

  • Current measurements
  • Current modelling
  • Wave modelling
  • Emissions modelling
  • Suitability Assessment of Farming Locations
  • Particle and infection spreading

Our oceanographers also develop tools for research applications.
