Our research relies on a wide variety of topics from different engineering disciplines. In addition to fundamentals taught in MEAM, ESE, and CIS, the following resources include background theory and databases that we use in our work.

  • LCS tutorial: This tutorial provides a good overview of Lagrangian Coherent Structures.
  • Current ocean data: This database provide hindcasts, nowcasts and forecasts for ocean currents, temperatures, salinity profiles, etc.
  • Distributed dynamical systems: This course provides tools, methods, and algorithms for analysis and design of distributed dynamical systems.
