Ocean Current Analysis
Mentor: Laurent Cherubin, Ph.D.
Student: Richard Peterson
Home Institution: Northern Arizona University
Richard Peterson worked with Dr. Laurent Cherubin on his ocean current analysis project. Rich conducted experiments to collect ocean current data, and analyzed the data using both existing and new software tools. He was introduced to multidisciplinary research and its benefits for a broader, computationally-driven understanding of marine ecosystems and oceanic processes.
