Transcript of Presentation
BIOSKETCH: Ralph Milliff is a research scientist at the Colorado Research Associates division of NorthWest Research Associates. His expertise is in numerical modeling of the ocean and atmosphere and in the relation of air-sea dynamics to climate. He was an ocean modeling postdoctoral fellow at NCAR (1989–1991), and a staff scientist there until 2001. Dr. Milliff has served as a member of the NASA Ocean Vector Winds Science Team for the NSCAT and QSCAT missions (1991-present). His current research involves the application of global surface vector wind datasets of studies of upper ocean mixing and the ocean’s general circulation, the Madden-Julian Oscillation, and the quasistationary waves of the Southern Hemisphere. In addition, Dr. Milliff is adapting methods of Bayesian hierarchical models from probability and statistics to problems of air-sea interaction.
