Discontinuous Galerkin Methods for Modeling the Coastal Ocean

6 June 2013
Professor Clint Dawson
The coastal ocean contains a diversity of physical and biological processes, often occurring at vastly different scales. In this talk, we will outline some of these processes and their mathematical description. We will then discuss how finite element methods are used in coastal ocean modeling and recent research into improvements to these algorithms. We will also highlight some of the successes of these methods in simulating complex events, such as hurricane storm surges. Finally, we will outline several interesting challenges which are ripe for future research.
