Numerical & Experimental Hydrodynamic Modelling Forum

Numerical & Experimental Hydrodynamic Modelling Forum

Established within the Dynamics and Properties of Marine Systems (DPMS) research theme, the MASTS Numerical and Experimental Hydrodynamic Modelling (NEHM) forum exists to promote numerical and experimental hydrodynamic modelling within Scotland, and provide a platform for bringing together the scientific community to address current and future research needs.

Both numerical and physical models are used to simulate estuarine, coastal and ocean-scale flows, and as such have a broad range of applications, from environmental assessment, to marine energy, to climatology. MASTS members have research expertise in these areas, which can be seen below.
