Brief Bio
Eugene Morozov, Head of Laboratory of Hydrological Processes at the Shirshov Institute of Oceanology in Moscow (Russia). He has been working at this Institute after graduating from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology in 1970. He never changed his place of work. His research is focused on oceanic internal waves and large-scale circulation of the ocean. He is a field oceanographer and a specialist in the observations in the open ocean. He works on data acquisition, data processing, interpretations, and partly numerical modeling. Since 2002, he has been interested in the abyssal flows in the Atlantic Ocean and abyssal circulation, especially in the flows in the deep fractures. Since 2008, he has been also working on the problems of arctic oceanography in cooperation with the scientists from the University Centre in Svalbard. His interests are in the interaction of the ocean water and glaciers descending to the fjords. During his oceanographic career he participated in 47 long oceanic cruises in all oceans of the globe and in 15 coastal expeditions. His field works are related to internal tides and currents in the ocean such as the Gulf Stream, Kuroshio and their rings, Antarctic Circumpolar Current, Falkland Current, California Current, equatorial countercurrents in the Indian and Atlantic oceans. From 2011 to 2015 he was the President of the International Association for the Physical Sciences of the Ocean (IAPSO).


Processes in the ocean coastal area affect many aspects of life all around the world. To study hydrodynamical phenomena, pollution distribution, coastal deterioration and interaction with natural and artificial structures we can use both observations and numerical simulation. In the workshop we will focus on mixing processes, sediments distribution, internal waves, instabilities and turbulence, fluid-structure interaction, offshore and onshore wind farms, radar and lidar observation, GIS and corresponding data analysis. Different approaches for numerical simulations and interpretations of results will be discussed. There will be a discussion on how GIS method could be applied for the identification the optimal onshore, offshore wind farm sites in Russia, based not only on wind potential, but also on additional criteria.
