Working with flows in large volumes, such as in the ocean and atmosphere, depends on expertise in numerical method and programming. Students at the Department of Geosciences have achieved this by taking the course Atmosphere and Oceans on Computers. The teaching has now become a textbook. Photo: Gunn Kristin Tjoflot / UiO

Based on over 30 years of experience in modelling and numerical calculations, Professor Lars Petter Røed at the Department of Geosciences has written the textbook 'Atmospheres and Oceans on Computers'. The textbook summarises numerical methods for calculating atmospheric and ocean currents. Computer power is increasingly used in geosciences. Numerical calculations is the key.
