Poleward-drifter trajectories (Ill: I. Koszalka, UiO)
About the group
Oceanography is from Greek and means okeanos 'the ocean' and logia 'to speak'
Mathematical models (analytical and numerical) of differing degrees of complexity are the main tool for a large part of this research, but there are also field activities and laboratory studies. Within marine optics and in the studies of processes in fjords and estuaries, the field studies can be a significant factor.
The group has extensive collaboration with other institutes both national and international. The collaboration involves research and training of Ph d students. At present the following Ph d students are affiliated with the Oceanography group:
- Ada Gjermundsen
- Marta Trodahl
- Eli Børve
