Prof. A. Bellin
Research Interests
My general research interest covers the areas of Hydraulics and Environmental Fluid
Mechanics, with a focus on Physical Limnology. My activity is aimed at understanding and describing complex natural phenomena by combining the development of simple
mathematical models and the analysis of observational data, both in situ and remotelysensed.
My most recent research is in the field of Surface Hydrology, where I am working on the
development of a highly parallelizable, simple and rapid regional scale hydrological model,
to be directly coupled with GCMs or RCMs.
