In situ observations, remote sensing data, and nested
regional ocean model simulations are used to understand synoptic,
seasonal and inter-annual variability of Northeastern U.S. coastal ocean
circulation, and its associated alongshore and cross-shelf transport.
Extensive data/model comparisons and some detailed dynamical and
statistical analysis on the regional circulation dynamics will be
discussed. Results from a coupled physical-biochemical model simulation
for the region will also be presented.
Dr. He received his Ph.D. in Physical Oceanography from the University of South Florida in 2002. He was a postdoctoral scholar and then an assistant scientist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution from 2003 to 2006, before he joined North Carolina State University as an associate professor in the Department of Marine, Earth, and Atmospheric Sciences. Dr. He's research interests include coastal circulation dynamics, numerical modeling and data assimilation, bio-physical interactions, and satellite oceanography.
