Guillaume Marcotte, Ph.D.
Current research and/or projects
I am developing sofware solutions for the estimation of source terms in atmospheric modelling and fate and behaviour modules in oil spill dispersion.
- Atmospheric dispersion
- Fire modelling - smoke, heat, plume and gases
- Aquatic dispersion of oil products
- Fate, behaviour and weathering of oil products
- Ice - oil interaction
Professional activities / interests
- Atmospheric chemistry
- Water chemistry
- Environmental emergencies
