PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE SUMMARY: More than 38 years working experience in all aspects of physical oceanography. Of these more than 31 years within Universities and/or governmental research institutions, and 7 years in industrial research institutions. Author and coauthor of more than 150 scientific papers and technical reports of which 40 are papers published/accepted in international peer reviewed journals and/or books. Experience include: · Development and use of numerical and analytical geophysical models, including storm surge models, fully three-dimensional, baroclinic ocean models (isopycnic as well as terrain-following models), dynamic-thermodynamic ice models, water quality models, surface gravity wave models, coupled ice-ocean models, and coupled atmosphere-iceocean models. · Development of advanced innovative methods in numerical modeling of geophysical phenomena, e.g., open boundary conditions · Studies of mesoscale ocean variability (eddies, meanders, jets, and filaments) including · Development of an innovative energy diagnostic scheme for terrain following ocean models · Investigations of future wind, storm surge and wave climate in Norwegian waters · Development of a novel high resolution current profiler based on coherent acoustic Doppler techniques · Teaching (undergraduate and graduate level), including supervision of Master and Ph.D. students. · Project and line management.
