Dr. Matjaž Ličer

Working place: Scientific Associate

Department: Marine Biology Station Piran


I received my Phd in physics from University of Ljubljana in 2009.  



I am currently working in a group performing a multidirectionally coupled modelling chain, containing atmospheric, wave, ocean and hydrological models. These efforts are done in collaboration with Environment Agency of Republic of Slovenia and Ocean Physics And Modelling Group at Division of Environmental Physics at the University of Athens. I am part of a group setting a high frequency radar system for measuring surface currents and waves in the Gulf of Trieste and Bay of Piran, that MBP is setting up together with our colleagues from the Institute for Oceanography and Experimental Geophysics in Trieste.



I work mainly in operational physical oceanography, ie. with development of numerical and observational systems for ocean state forecasting (circulation, tidal dynamics, waves, temperatures, salinities, pollutant dispersion).

I am interested in mathematical modelling of pollutant (fuels, plastics) spreading in marine environments.

Appart from scientific interests these pursuits aim at enhancing atmospheric and ocean state forecasts and ensure a higher level of public safety during natural and environmental disasters.
