If you are interested in the last developments of our research, our dissemination activities and If you would like to stay updated on our achievments and latest research results please follow the most recent news about our work.
From Global to Local, multiscale research of environmental processes in the atmoshpere and in the ocean with engineering applications
Our research lines comprise:
Environmental Fluid Mechanics
Atmospheric and Ocean modelling: hindcast, forecast and climate projections
Ports and Marine Structures
Renewable Energies: marine, wind, hybrid
Climate Change and Coastal Impacts
Dispersion of pollutants, macroand micro-plastics
Nature-Based Engineering Solutions
Learning never exhausts the mind
We believe that by bringing together international researchers, we can broaden our perspectives and enhance our understanding of the complex challenges facing coastal communities. Our seminars provide a platform for researchers, engineers, academics, and industrial experts to share their research experiences, indulge in interactive discussions, and participate in technical sessions.
We eager to pass our experience and knowledge to young students and scholars
The MeteOcean Research group’s teaching approach is characterized by a balance of theory and practical problem solving. Our courses range from basic Fluid Mechanics to Environmental Engineering applications, and cover a wide range of subjects in the field of Environmental Fluid Mechanics, Atmospheric Physics, Coastal and Harbour Engineering, and Coastal Oceanography. Our staff provides a well-rounded education, equipping students with both foundational knowledge and the ability to apply it to real-world problems. This balance sets our teaching activities apart, making MeteOcean Research group a unique and valuable learning opportunity.
If you want to go fast, go alone
If you want to go far, go together
We are a wide diverse group of researchers from various backgrounds, experiences and cultures. We put passion and enthusiasm in developing our research and providing young students the skills and the know-how in the field of Environmental Engineering and Geophysical Processes.
If you are interested in working with us please check available oppurtunities here
We are always eager to involve young scholars and researchers in our group offering different types of working positions (Ph.D., Post-Doc, Assistant Researcher). Please have a look if there is an opportunity to collaborate and work with us!
Media & Outreach
What we do for dissemination and public engagement and what the media and the press are saying about us
We are involved in different activites devoted to the dissemination of our research activities and results to the general public. We strongly believe that public engagement and citizen science can help us a lot in reaching a wide audience to raise awareness about the importance of our research and its applications
