About us

Discover the world of the MeteOcean Research Group at UniGE

We are an interdisciplinary group working to advance scientific understanding of a wide range of fields, from atmospheric, ocean and coastal dynamics to the development of coastal engineering solutions for a sustainable management of natural systems in a changing climate.


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
Machine Learning Applied to Geophysical Applications

Access weather and wave forecasts and services


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 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.
