Resources, Energy and Environment

These three areas all offer modelling opportunities for problems on many length-scales, some of them very large.  They offer great scope for mathematical ingenuity in identifying key mechanisms and the competition between them and in systematically reducing the inherent computational complexity.  Furthermore, the speed of innovation in these areas is generating new modelling challenges.

In addition to the research undertaken by OCCAM's faculty and research fellows, the following projects are currently being undertaken by PDRAs and students:

The current projects are aimed both at developing new algorithms for very large-scale models and exploring new theoretical themes in geomorphology, climate change, and oil recovery.
