Coastal inlets and river mouths create dynamic, unpredictable environmental conditions that make it difficult to plan surface and subsurface ocean operations.
SRI provides high-fidelity computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis and comprehensive physics-based system multibody dynamics (MBD) modeling
Estimation of River Characteristics from Remote Sensing Data.
SRI is developing small, highly sensitive arrays for pervasive monitoring of chemical and biological processes in the ocean and other environments.
For the Department of Energy, SRI and partners studied methane hydrate deposits in the Gulf of Mexico.
SRI combines data assimilation algorithms with hydrodynamic forecast models for high-resolution forecasts of nearshore oceanographic properties for coastal operations.
SRI develops graphical user interfaces to help non-expert end users set up high-resolution nested wave and circulation models for ocean forecasting.
