CMSS 611 - Modeling of the Atmosphere and Ocean (3 credits)


(Prereq: MATH 260 and MATH 320 or instructor consent) Processes associated with the atmosphere, ocean, and their interactions can have devastating impacts on the coastal ad marine zones. Model simulations of these processes help us better understand these processes and provide Predictive capabilities of their potential impact, crucial in decision-making and future preparation. To this end, this class seeks to provide the bases and hands-on applications behind the numerical modeling of coastal processes along with discussions of basic atmospheric and oceanic science principles, course topics include computational tools, numerical theories/methods, basic data analyses, and the usage/applications of commonly employed ocean, atmosphere, and marine modeling systems suitable to the coastal regions.
