Position Description

Temp: Summer

Background: For more than two centuries, Coast Survey has provided navigation products and services that ensure safe and efficient maritime commerce.

Coast Survey maintains the nation's nautical charts, surveys the coastal seafloor, responds to national maritime emergencies, and searches for underwater obstructions and wreckage. Coast Survey modelers provide forecast guidance of oceanographic information to help mariners safely navigate their local waters. This national network of hydrodynamic models provides users with operational nowcast and forecast guidance (out to 48 hours) on parameters such as water levels, water temperature, salinity, and currents. These forecast systems are implemented in critical ports, harbors, estuaries, Great Lakes, and coastal waters of the United States and form a national backbone of real-time data, tidal predictions, data management, and operational modeling.

Duties: The intern will develop skill assessments and visualization tools for the US West Coast Ocean Forecast System (WCOFS). The intern will learn about aspects of physical oceanography and numerical modeling used to predict sea level, transports, temperature and other oceanic variables and apply these concepts during development.
