Using Overleaf – a webinar

On Tuesday, March 9, in collaboration with researchers from the faculty of Physics, Mathematics and Optometry and representatives from the University Library a webinar was organised on Overleaf and the possibilities it offers. Overleaf is a collaborative cloud-based LaTeX editor used for writing, editing and publishing scientific documents. Recently the Nature Science Faculties of the […]

How energy efficient are buildings in Latvia?

Dr Phys. Staņislavs Gendelis, a senior researcher at the Institute of Numerical Modelling, has carried out a statistical analysis of buildings with issued energy performance certificates in Latvia for the past five years. The performed analysis was published in the journal Būvinženieris (in Latvian – Civil Engineer) in the February 2021 issue. The most interesting […]

Interviews with our researchers

Greetings from the Institute of Numerical Modelling in the International Women’s Day!We would especially like to greet our employees – Baiba Jirgensone, Maija Sjomkāne, Liene Bandeniece, Inese Suija, Tija Sīle and Daiga Cepīte-Frišfelde.To celebrate this day we have interviewed our two female researchers – Tija Sīle and Daiga Cepīte-Frišfelde. Tija Sīle started working for the […]

The Latvian Government grants funding to the EuroCC project

On February 25, the Cabinet of Ministres supported Latvia’s participation in the EuroHPC project, this provides an opportunity to finance the EuroCC project that had already been launched. In June 2018, Latvia decided to join the EuroHPC initiative, which later became the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking, this decision means that the Latvian government agreed to take […]

The CE2COAST project website is published

Human-made global climate change will have significant impacts at regional and coastal scales on marine systems, dependent socioeconomies and ocean services. These can strongly interact with regional and local human-activity induced pressures such as fishing, pollution, and eutrophication. The challenges of understanding climate and ocean change at European and global scales require expertise exceeding that […]

Two new highlighted articles on the making of the New European Wind Atlas

For the last several years Tija Sīle, a researcher from the Institue of Numerical Modelling, has actively worked on developing the New European Wind Atlas (NEWA). Together with researchers from all across Europe she has developed and introduced a new methodology for the assessment of wind conditions. The findings have been published in Geoscientific Model […]

Interview with our researcher in the journal “Ir”

Recently an interview with one of the researchers from the Institute of Numerical modelling – Ģirts Zāģeris, was published in the journal Ir. Ģirts does not only work as a researcher and continues his doctoral studies, he is also a physics’ teacher in the Riga State Gymnasium No. 1. Ģirts Zāģeris started giving physics’ lectures […]

X-ray radiography experiments at Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR)

From October 23 to December 23, 2020, researcher Mihails Birjukovs from the Institute of Numerical Modelling (INM) will be a visiting researcher in Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf. Together with the local magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) group Mihails will be working on researching MHD bubble flow and mesoscale metal solidification at the Institute of Fluid Dynamics. During the visit, X-ray […]

INM researchers have successfully completed the series of experiments at the Paul Scherrer Institute

The series of neutron radiography experiments at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) were successfully completed at the beginning of October. Scientists from the Institute of Numerical Modelling (INM) – Mihails Birjukovs, Jevgēņijs Teličko, Pēteris Zvejnieks and Mārtiņš Klevs – observed magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) bubble flow in a liquid gallium model system for different gas flow rates […]
