Modeling Meteotsunamis on the Great Lakes

Modeling Meteotsunamis on the Great Lakes

Anderson’s research focuses on the interactions between the hydrosphere, cryosphere, and atmosphere, wherein he uses numerical modeling to study Earth’s largest lakes and rivers, extreme storms (meteotsunamis), coastal flooding, lake-effect precipitation, and the impacts on the ecosystem.
