CCPO Speaker to Discuss Coastal Oceans Modeling

Old Dominion University's Center for Coastal Physical Oceanography will host a North Carolina State University scientist Monday, Feb. 1, who will discuss his research with coastal and estuarine circulation modeling that can forecast biological events such as harmful algae blooms.

Ruoying He, associate professor in NCSU's Department of Marine, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, will make a presentation at 3:30 p.m. in Room 3200 of Innovation Research Park Building 1. The seminar is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served from 3 to 3:30.

The title of his presentation is "Investigation of Circulation and Biophysical Processes in the Northeastern U.S. Coastal Ocean: Observations and Numerical Modeling." He will discuss extensive data/model comparisons and detailed dynamical and statistical analysis on the regional circulation dynamics.

He's seminar will present results from an integrated modeling system that he has developed for the northeastern coastal ocean.
