Academics | Physical Ocean Science & Engineering
Dr. Fabrice Veron
About Our Program
The Physical Ocean Science and Engineering (POSE) Program covers a wide range of research and educational topics. Common to all the research areas in the program is the application of fluid dynamics and wave mechanics.
Students are able to use physics and engineering for the advanced study of contemporary research topics in coastal physical oceanography, coastal engineering, ocean acoustics, near shore processes, environmental fluid dynamics, air-sea interactions and estuarine dynamics.
A Multidisciplinary Approach
This multidisciplinary academic program is designed to give students broad knowledge in physical oceanography as well as opportunities to focus on their desired area of expertise. The program is particularly appropriate for students with physics, mathematics, or engineering backgrounds. Students in the program pursue a Master's degree or a doctorate in marine studies with a concentration in Physical Ocean Science and Engineering. Students entering the program through the department of engineering may get a Master's or doctorate in ocean engineering.
Physical Oceanographers from CEOE are co-leading an international project to track fresh water, from melting ice and rivers, flowing out of the Arctic Ocean into the Atlantic. This fresh water affects the salinity and circulation of the ocean and thus has a major influence on the Earth's climate.
Where We Work
In addition to the sophisticated classrooms at CEOE, students have access to the latest research facilities including the college's 146-foot research vessel, R/V HUGH R. SHARP, and a number of state-of-the-art laboratory facilities located on both on the Newark and Lewes campuses.
