Brandon Dugan of the Pennsylvania State University presented a talk entitled "Fluid Flow and Stability of the New Jersey Continental Slope" at the Woods Hole Field Center on April 17, 2002. Brandon, who is finishing his Ph.D. this fall, will join the USGS as a Mendenhall Postdoctoral Fellow in the late fall or winter. Brandon plans to use his background in geophysics, computer modeling, and civil engineering to study fluid flow and gas-hydrate occurrence in the Gulf of Mexico. His dissertation advisor, Peter Flemming, spoke at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution geodynamics seminar in early March. Peter's presentation included some of Brandon's results. Brandon gave an overview of his dissertation research, followed by an informal discussion about his experiments and models and their application to continental-margin problems.
