Tal Ezer

Professor of Ocean & Earth Sciences (OES)

Editor-in-Chief: - by - .

Ph.D., Physical Oceanography, Florida State University (1989)
M.Sc., Atmospheric Sciences, Hebrew University (1984)

About me: I came to ODU in 2007, after spending almost eighteen years at Princeton University. Since the early 1990s I have managed and provided support to the Princeton Ocean Model (POM) users group of some 6000 modelers from 70 countries, and since 2009 I have been involved in organizing the International Workshop on Modeling the Ocean (IWMO) and editing IWMO Special Issues.
Research interests: physical oceanography, numerical ocean modeling, coastal dynamics, ocean turbulence; in recent years my research focused on climate change, sea level rise, hurricanes, and their impact on the coast. (ICAR, ODU-RC)
