Global Waters - Day Pass 2/10 - The Coastal Ocean Environment Summer School in Ghana and the Ocean Corps
Professor Arbic will describe an oceanography summer school that has been running in Ghana for one week every August since 2015. He will also describe the concept of an “Ocean Corps”, which is inspired by the Peace Corps and aspires to increase global collaborations in ocean science, to the benefit of all nations. Dr. Arbic is a physical oceanographer. He uses computer animations to simulate flows in the ocean and the interactions of the ocean with the atmosphere. He studies tides, internal gravity waves (waves that have a maximum displacement signal well below the sea surface), and mesoscale eddies (the oceanic equivalent of atmospheric weather systems). He is also a former Peace Corps volunteer. He taught secondary level math and physics in Ghana from 1990-1992.
