Assistant Research Professor
Ph.D. Physical Oceanography, Oregon State University, 1995
B.S. Applied Mathematics, Harvey Mudd College, 1988
Dr. Zaron joins our Department in the summer 2006 as part of Dr. David Jay's research team, and will work with Dr. Jay on research funded by the NSF, US Army Corps of Engineers and the Bonneville Power Administration. Dr. Zaron's research has emphasized using inverse methods to validate numerical ocean models and improve their predictive capability. Applications have ranged from scales of tens of kilometers (tidal internal waves) to thousands of kilometers (basin scale general circulation). He is also interested in the dynamical links between small-scale mixing processes and the mesoscale ocean circulation.
