Multidimensional Water-Wave Dynamics

10:45 AM-12:45 PM
Room: Savannah 3

Progress in understanding water wave phenomena involves theory, computation, and experiment. The speakers will discuss all three in the context of wave dynamics in shallow water. They will describe the role of waves in generating transport, the influence of bottom topography on dynamics, patterns of traveling and standing waves, damping mechanisms, and related issues.
