Ocean/atmosphere coupling, tsunami inundation modeling, landslide modeling, teaching Oceanography 101 and Seattle Central Community College.
Current Research Projects
- Community Model Interface for Tsunami(ComMIT) – a project to teach inundation modeling and forecast systems design to researchers and emergency managers within the United States and abroad.
- Short-term Inundation Forecast for Tsunamis(SIFT) – pre-running model results for both the operational forecast system for NOAA, and for use in hazard assessment and general research.
- Landslide modeling project – using a simplified arbitrary lagrangian/eulerian hydrocode to model the complex dynamics of landslide-induced tsunamis and their possible impact on the nuclear reactor sites.
