I thought I’d come back from the miasma with a selection of topics my fellow grad students are working on.
1.) Modeling dolphin whistles for the purpose of covert communications
2.) Internal tides-that is tides occurring between two layers of water.
3.) Measuring velocity fields using lasers and marine snow. (Marine snow is basically plankton feces)
4.) Sending autonomous underwater vehicles under arctic ice and having them return.
5.) Detecting squid by chirping at them.
And there are more of course, but these are the easiest to describe.
