PhD thesis (2007): "Numerical modeling of interaction between atmosphere and water reservoirs" (scientific supervisor - corresponding member of RAS V. N. Lykosov)


The area of interests: boundary layer physics, numerical modeling of water reservoirs and atmospheric boundary layer.


Victor Stepanenko has created and developed the numerical model of thermo-hydrodynamic processes, occurring in the system "surface atmospheric layer - water reservoir - soil" (SRCC lake model). The model has been used to study these processes at different time scales and in various geographical regions, including those with permafrost.


Victor Stepanenko takes part in teaching activities at Faculty of Geography of MSU: he gives lectures on mesoscale meteorology for students of Department of Meteorology and Climatology (4-th year), and practical seminars for 1-st year students.
