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 […]
