CCPO Speaker to Discuss Turbulence Near the Bottom of the Coastal Ocean

Erin Hackett, a doctoral student and National Defense Science and Engineering Fellow in Johns Hopkins University's Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, will present her research on coastal waters bottom-boundary-layer turbulence in the fall seminar series of Old Dominion University's Center for Coastal Physical Oceanography at 3:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 20.

The talk in CCPO's Room 3200 in the Innovation Research Park@ODU Building 1 will be preceded by a reception with refreshments beginning at 3 p.m. The seminars in the series are free and open to the public.

The topic of Hackett's presentation is "Characterization of Near-Bed Turbulence in the Coastal Ocean Measured Using Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV)." She uses advanced experimental techniques to study turbulent transport in the coastal ocean, which is important to many physical and biological processes.
