The Physical Oceanography Division at the University of Hawaii invites applications for graduate school in pursuit of either M.S. or Ph.D. degrees.
Through faculty sponsors, students have access to a wide variety of research facilities, courses, programs and equipment. World-class facilities accessible for research include two ocean- going research vessels: the R/V Kilo Moana, a 185-ft, twin- hull SWATH (Small Waterplane Area Twin Hull) vessel and the R/V Ka’imikai-O-Kanaloa, a 203-ft monohull vessel. Other world-class facilities include two deep diving submersibles, state-of-the-art hydrographic instruments, real-time satellite receiving stations, coastal radars and a vast network of workstations, servers and computing clusters.
Physical Oceanography is part of the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST), a leading multi-disciplinary research school that includes departments in oceanography, meteorology, geological sciences, planetary sciences, marine biology, natural energy, and climate. Join this diverse and exciting group while living in a tropical paradise.
We welcome applications from those students interested in Physical Oceanography. Specific research projects include, but are not limited to:
Equatorial dynamics: Research, using both observations and numerical modeling, into mixing in the equatorial Pacific and its impact on the coupled ocean/atmosphere system. Please contact: Dr. Kelvin Richards, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ocean circulation: Satellite altimetry and large-scale ocean circulation variability. Please contact: Dr. Bo Qiu, email@example.com.
Numerical modeling of coastal physical oceanography and marine ecosystems: Interdisciplinary research consisting of modeling and quantitative analysis to provide insight into effluent outflows in Hawaii. Please contact: Dr. Brian Powell, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Application deadline is January 15 for Fall, 2012 admission.
Admission requirements, ?nancial aid information, application materials and degree requirements may be found at http://www.soest.hawaii.edu/oceanography/graddegrees.html
