About the Hydrodynamics Laboratory
The greatest strength of UIO’s Hydrodynamics Laboratory (Hydro Lab) is the combination of having latest equipment and research technology along with a dedicated and knowledgeable academic staff.
Scientific investigations at the Hydro Lab span the fields of sea, air, land, (ETC) and how these systems work and interact. Our researchers and students study diverse areas: from designing computer models to avalanche impacts on local fjord communities.
Observation, measurement, and collection of samples and data are accomplished within the laboratory. We use a combination of laboratory experiments, theoretical analysis and numerical modeling to improve our understanding of fluid flow phenomena.
