The Aquatic Physics Group studies physical processes mainly in lakes, reservoirs and rivers. We have two approaches:
- From small scale in situ turbulence measurements to large scale three-dimensional models.
- Aquatic physics as a tool to understand aquatic systems.
Our research consists in dedicated in-situ measurements together with large scale three dimensional numerical models. This approach is perfectly fitted to understand the spatial variability of lakes. An example can be seen here with results of a three dimensional hydrodynamic model of Lake Geneva provided in forecasting mode (see also project CORESIM).
