New guidelines for the application of Stokes’ models to the sinking velocity of marine aggregates

Numerical simulations of ocean biogeochemical cycles need to adequately represent particle sinking velocities (SV). For decades, Stokes’ Law estimating particle SV from density and size has been widely used. But while Stokes’ Law holds for small, smooth, and rigid spheres settling at low Reynolds number, it fails when applied to marine aggregates complex in shape, […]

The final conference of the VIVALDI project

26-27 November at the PNBI in Plouzané will consist in a Scientific congress dedicated to VIVALDI‘s research results. 28 November will be open to all stakeholders and will present VIVALDI’s main applied outcomes and potential innovations. On that day, interpretation will be available in French, English, Spanish and Italian. Session will take place at Océanopolis […]

RESSAC Festival from 16 to 22 November

The first edition of the Ressac festival (Research in the arts and creation sciences), proposed and organised by the cultural service of the UBO (University of Western Brittany), begins on Saturday 16 November with the project “Auris maris, une oreille de mer à l’écoute du changement climatique” at Océanopolis. LEMAR participates in this project, in […]
