Detailed Description

Jin-Si Over is a Geographer with the USGS Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center. So, why does she love the ocean? "I love the ocean because without it we wouldn't have the amazing beaches I study and work on. Beaches host nesting grounds for piping plover, sea turtles, and are such a dynamic interface between the oceans and our own homes." Jin-Si works on coastal hazard assessments and forecasts from hurricanes to improve hurricane impact models for coastlines and coastal vulnerability to future storms as well as aid in post-storm recovery efforts.
