USGS Sediment-Transport Modeling Highlighted at Ocean Sciences Meeting

USGS activities in coastal-sediment-transport modeling were highlighted at the recent Ocean Sciences Meeting in Honolulu, Hawai'i, sponsored jointly by the American Geophysical Union (AGU) and the American Society of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO). Chris Sherwood (Woods Hole, MA) and Courtney Harris (former USGS postdoctoral fellow at Woods Hole) were co-convenors for a special scientific session on "Application and Assessment of Coastal Sediment Transport Models," featuring nearly 40 presentations from scientists around the world.

The USGS (Sherwood) and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (Rocky Geyer) also hosted a Town Meeting to promote and discuss the ongoing development of community models. This meeting was part of a joint National Oceanographic Partnership Program (NOPP) grant, and linked to the USGS' National Community Sediment-Transport Model Project. The goal of the Town Meeting was to report on progress toward a community model, engage the wider community of interested scientists in the project, and continue open discussion of technical issues. John Warner (USGS Mendenhall postdoctoral fellow at Woods Hole), Dano Roelvink (Delft Hydraulics), and Pravi Shrestha (HydroQual, Inc.) presented results of model tests and comparisons. The meeting was well attended and a great success, thanks in part to logistical coordination by Soupy Alexander (USGS, Woods Hole).
