Andrea O'Neill

Oceanographer with the USGS Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center

I'm an oceanographer and meteorologist with Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center in Santa Cruz, CA. I have expertise in coastal and marine hazards projections, hydrodynamic simulations, coastal impacts with climate change, and team building. Following 11 years of meteorological and oceanographic forecasting in the Western Pacific, I began my career at USGS doing future coastal flooding hazards projections using the Coastal Storm Modeling System (CoSMoS).  I have a B.S. in oceanography from the University of Washington in Seattle, WA, and an M.S. in physical oceanography and meteorology from Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, CA.
