Impact of Waves Along Coastlines

posted on October 10, 2014

MSI Fellow Professor David Yuen (Earth Sciences) is one of the organizers of the Impact of Waves Along Coastlines workshop being held at the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications on October 14-17, 2014. Professor Yuen and colleagues from across the country have put together this workshop, which features discussions of computer modeling and simulation of tsunamis and other coastal waves and how these simulations can be improved for better risk assessment and prediction. A description can be found on the IMA website.

Professor Yuen has been a Fellow of the Supercomputing Institute since its early days in the 1980s. His research at MSI addresses fundamental problems in both geophysics and biofluid dynamics.
