Salme Cook, PhD

My research focuses on combining numerical models with oceanographic observational datasets to better understand the hydrodynamics of coastal and estuarine systems.


I have a B.E. in Environmental Engineering and M.E. in Ocean Engineering from Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ and a PhD in Oceanography from the University of New Hampshire. Previous to receiving my PhD I worked as a staff engineer for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and an environmental engineer at a consulting firm in New Jersey. I am now a research oceanographer at the Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center.
