The Institute of Mathematical Machines and Systems Problems of the National Academy of Science of Ukraine (IMMSP) was formed in 1992 as a direct evolution from the Special Design Bureau of Mathematical Machines and Systems (SDB MMS) of CyberneticsCentre NASU. The environment modelling is important part of research and development from 1986, when urgent need of decision making support arose after Chornobyl accident.
The IMMSP is one of the developers of EU decision support system RODOS for offsite nuclear emergency including marine component which was so important for the Fukushima accident. The Department of marine and river system was intensively involved in series EU projects on spreading of marine pollutants in the Arctic environment during the 21st Century.
In collaboration with Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center (NERSC), the circulation, ice and pollution transport models were developed and implemented in Generic Modelling System. The hydrostatic and non- hydrostatic models were developed and applied to the gravitational slope currents. In frame of series of projects funded by Ukrainian Antarctic Centre these models were applied to simulation of gravitational flows released from Ronne- Filchner Ice Sheet. The community model SCHISM completed by FESIM ice dynamic-thermodynamic model was applied to the Bellingshausen Sea seasonal circulation.
