Stevens professor to speak during Princeton lecture series

Michael S. Bruno, Director of the Center for Maritime Systems and Professor of Ocean Engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology, will present the talk, "Advances in Coastal Ocean Observation Technologies," Saturday February 11, 2006 at 9:30 a.m. at Princeton University's MBG Auditorium. The presentation is part of Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory's Science on Saturday Lecture Series 2006, a series of talks geared toward high school students but open to all. Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory is a U.S. Department of Energy Facility.

Since 1998, Stevens has been developing a network of operational coastal ocean and estuary sensors that provide real-time observations of weather and ocean conditions throughout the region. As the network has expanded, and experience has been gained in the operation of the sensors and in the specialized needs of the array of data users, the system has evolved significantly. A forecasting component has been added, and 48-hour forecasts of weather and ocean conditions throughout the region are provided via the Internet, at http://hudson.dl.stevens-tech.edu/NYHOPS/. The Stevens system is now an important tool for the navigation, fishing, emergency management, and first responder communities. It also serves as a test-bed for new ocean observing technologies.

Bruno's presentation will address the technical details of the system, the essential partnering with the user community and the unique challenges associated with constructing an operational ocean observing and forecasting system in an urbanized coastal ocean region. He will also discuss future applications of coastal ocean observing systems to the array of short- and long-term issues confronting our society.

Bruno's research and teaching interests include ocean observation systems, coastal ocean dynamics, maritime security and estuary and ocean water quality. He is the author of more than 80 technical publicat
