Abstract:

Our long term goal is to improve coastal ocean prediction and understanding of currents, particle trajectories, water level, waves and tides, and other sea state and hydrographic properties by developing an advanced ocean current and trajectory simulation system. We are particularly interested in how our model products can be used in the coastal region for advanced warning of hazardous ocean conditions so life and property can be protected.
