Christopher Mooers

Research Professor / Professor Emeritus

Background

Ph.D. Physical Oceanography, Oregon State University, OR, USA, 1969
M.S. Physics, University of Connecticut, CT, USA, 1964
B.S. Naval Science, U.S. Naval Academy, USA, 1957

 

Dr. Mooers’ research interests include ocean prediction science, coastal ocean circulation dynamics, circulation of marginal and semi-enclosed seas, and mesoscale oceanography; regional circulation models; interface between models and observations: model-data comparisons, data assimilation, and nowcast-forecast experiments; shelfbreak processes. During the 1970s, he participated in the Coastal Upwelling Ecosystem Analysis (CUEA) Program; during the 1980s, he was a co-leader of the Ocean Prediction Through Observations, Modeling, and Analysis (OPTOMA) Program; during the 1990s, he initiated the Coastal Ocean Prediction Systems (COPS) Program; and during the 2000s, he is one of the founders of the Southeast Atlantic-Coastal Ocean Observing System (SEA-COOS) Program.
