About Bengt Liljebladh

Research Marine system analysis group Experimental studies of physical oceanographic processes. Wind-driven diapycnal mixing in stratified waters, the generation of near-inertial internal waves and their dissipation. Turbulence and dissipation measurements. Exchange flows, deep gravity currents and related hydraulics in straits.

Projects Geo-Engineering solutions to environmental problems. Responsible for field work, technology and logistics in the BOX project.. Development of a pump system for Oxygenation of Byfjorden and Kanholmsfjärden. Construction and maintenance of real-time moorings for monitoring oxygen and hydrography. Phosphorus (and other nutrients) cycling during oxygenation of stagnant basins
