NMEC - Estuarine and Coastal Modeling Division

The Estuarine and Coastal Modeling Division of University of Aveiro is composed by professors, researchers and fellow researchers of the Physics Department of the University of Aveiro. This group is integrated in the Research Group on Oceanography and Marine Geology of the research line on Marine Ecosystems and Modelling of the Associate Laboratory CESAM (Centre for Environment and Marine Studies) which is a Associate Laboratory of the University of Aveiro.

Ongoing research is especially dedicated to studies about sea level rising, coastal flooding, development of estuarine plumes, mixing processes and transport, physical/biology/chemistry interactions, with particular emphasis on the climate change effects.
