Computational Methods for Stratified Flows Involving Internal Waves

Awarded: NOK 4.0 mill.

The objective will be achieved by means of the following key points. High quality research: High quality of the mathematical and numerical research is to be achieved thorugh strongly focus PhD-research topics supported by research performed by postdocs a nd senior scientists. Computational Science and Engineering: Innovative research and development thorugh multi-disciplinary collaboration between mathematicians, computer scientists and researchers within marine environmental science. Large scale c omputation: The high requirements for numerical accuracy dictates the neeed for discretizations where the number of unknowns is large, and simulations runs long time intervals. Therewill be a need for scalable parallel methods. Software platform: To enable an efficient and robust software platform for further education and development, the software development will be based on an existing object oriented library. Marine environmental flows: The new computational methods developed in the project will improve the understandingand computational modelling of the fjords, the home of the phyto-plankton. National dimension: Understanding the marine environment is paramount to the Norwegian society. The consortium has nationwi de participance as it involves the three Norwegian universities NTNU UiO and UiTø and the two research institutes Norwegian Polar Institute and SINTEF.
