The Laboratory of Computational Physics in Marine Sciences


The Laboratory of computational physics in Marine Sciences is focused on development of advanced numerical models and theoretical solutions, for a wide range of problems in the field of Earth sciences, in which non-linearity and interplay between different scales and parameters take place.

Main research topics:

  • Methane bubbles dynamics in aquatic sediments

  • Induced earthquakes

  • Pore-scale flow and processes

Special Issue: The Lifetime of Methane Bubbles Through Sediment and Water Column

We are happy to inform you that a new article collection: The Lifetime of Methane Bubbles Through Sediment and Water Column has been launched in Frontiers in Earth Science, Marine Geoscience!

This collection aims to cover novel research results, developments, and methods, related to methane bubbles, their presence in aquatic sediments and in water column, as well as their temporal dynamics and spatial variability.

Submission Deadlines are: September 6, 2021 for Abstracts, December 16, 2021 for full Manuscripts.

We sincerely hope to have a great set of articles on this exciting topic!
