Description

Under an ongoing contract with the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM), Leidos, Inc. (formerly SAIC) has obtained an extensive observational dataset of currents, temperature, salinity, pressure, and travel time from inverted echo sounders, for an array deployed in the Loop Current (LC) in the eastern Gulf of Mexico. The Leidos principal investigator, Dr. Peter Hamilton, requires knowledgeable assistance in performing high-level dynamical analyses of these data in order to complete the synthesis tasks required for the draft final and final reports in a timely manner. Dr. Ruoying He is involved in the work and provides liaison with Dr. Hamilton.
