Group in Fluid Mechanics

The fluid mechanics group is dedicated to advancing our scientific understanding of nature, contribute to solving global issues facing humanity and to excellence in teaching. 

The Fluid Mechanics group deals with research topics which address prevalent geophysical, environmental, climatic, and industrial challenges through internal and external collaboration with leading scientists from prominent institutions such as Oxford University, MIT, NASA, the National Oceanography Centre, INRIA, Columbia and Tokyo University. We have strong ties with important regional and national institutions such as NORCE, the Institute for Marine Research, the Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center, NIVA, NTNU, SINTEF, The Norwegian Meteorological Institute, and the Norwegian Computing Center.

Work carried out by the fluid mechanics group is performed in close collaboration with other specialists in Norway and internationally. In particular, in the Bergen region this research group collaborates with the Geophysical Institute, Uni Research (see http://www.bccs.uni.no/units/cmu/), the Institute of Marine Research, the Nansen Center, NIVA, and Statoil ASA.

Master's and PhD students graduating under advisement of group members have been attractive on the job market.
