 previous story | next story

Jan Adriaan ("Dano") Roelvink will be visiting the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in Woods Hole, MA, from mid-April through mid-June.

Dano is a senior engineer at WL|Delft Hydraulics Laboratory in The Netherlands and also teaches at the Technical University of Delft. Dano is one of the innovative forces behind the Delft3D numerical model for waves, currents, and morphologic change in coastal systems. His visit continues a cooperative effort between the Coastal and Marine Geology Program (CMGP) and Delft Hydraulics, which has included visits to Delft by CMGP scientists and visits to the USGS in Menlo Park, CA, by Mathijs Meijs and Giles Lesser.

Dano is taking a sabbatical from Delft to write "the book" on coastal modeling, and looks forward to interacting with USGS and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution scientists during his visit.
