The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)'s Western Region Coastal and Marine Geology team welcomed the addition of two new scientists this fall: Dan Hanes in September and Curt Storlazzi in October.

Dan is an oceanographer with extensive experience in coastal sedimentation processes; he has degrees from the University of California, San Diego (B.A.), and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography of the University of California, San Diego (M.S. and Ph.D.), where he worked with Doug Inman on the mechanics of flowing granular materials and sediment transport. Dan has been in academia since 1983 and a professor in the University of Florida's Coastal and Oceanographic Engineering Program since 1989.

Dan will be working on the Coastal Sediment Transport Modeling and CABRILLO (Southern California Bight Regional Investigations—Life, Land, Ocean) projects. Dan is collaborating with Guy Gelfenbaum, Peter Ruggerio, and Chris Sherwood on issues pertaining to modeling the cross-shore transport of sand and the evolution of the shoreface profile. He is also working with Dave Rubin on sediment stratification resulting from sheet-flow processes. Dan is stationed at the Pacific Science Center in Santa Cruz, CA.

Curt is an oceanographer with experience in coastal and nearshore processes; he has degrees from the University of Delaware (B.S.) and the University of California, Santa Cruz (Ph.D.), where he worked on studies of El Niño's impacts on central California and sediment distribution and transport along rocky shorelines. Curt has more recently worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the USGS with Mike Field, studying coral-reef processes in the Hawaiian Islands, and at the University of California, Santa Cruz, where he was the lead oceanographer on the Partnership for Interdisciplinary Study of Coastal Oceans (PISCO) Project.

Curt will be working on the Coral Reef and Central California Regional Synthesis projects. Initially, he will collaborate with Mike Field on investigating sedimentation and oceanographic processes on coral reefs and with Marlene Noble on synthesizing our present knowledge of central California's oceanographic regime. Curt is stationed at the Pacific Science Center in Santa Cruz, CA.
