The Lagrangian Analysis and Prediction of Coastal and Ocean Dynamics (LAPCOD) group
is an active group of researchers on Virginia Key with many collaborators here and abroad
that use the Lagrangian viewpoint for observing, studying, modeling, and predicting nature.
Our primary research includes analyzing, modeling, assimilating, understanding,
and predicting ocean and coastal currents from (quasi-)Lagrangian measurements such as
free drifting surface buoys, subsurface floats, and marked/dyed water parcels in order to
better understand transport and dispersion in fluids.
Our present research is focused on modeling the
2010 Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico via the
Consortium for Advanced Research on Transport of Hydrocarbon in the Environment (CARTHE)
LAPCOD 2019 (VII)
Our next meeting will be during the week of June 17-21, 2019 in Venice Italy.
