The Physical Oceanography and Applied Geophysics research group is currently composed of lecturers and students at the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC) that develop their research activity in the areas of Applied Physics, Earth Physics and Cartographic, Geodetic and Photogrammetry Engineering.

 

Physical Oceanography

OFYGA develops most of its teaching and research activity in the field of Physical Oceanography. In particular, it focuses its activity on mixing processes, regional oceanography, marine pollution and circulation at intermediate levels.

Applied Geophysics

This is the second branch in which OFYGA develops its teaching and research activities. It is currently focused on magnetometry, hoping to expand it in the near future to gravimetry and seismic.

Scientific dissemination

OFYGA dedicates part of its effort to communicate its scientific work in a close and understandable way for society as a whole.
