Cafe Scientifique Orlando is a gathering of scientifically-inclined people in Central Florida, who meet at a cafe, coffee house, pub, or nonacademic location to discuss events and ideas in the world of science. We enjoy beer and wine, and we use plain language to talk about extraordinary ideas.
Modern technology now allows us to model tides on the scale of entire oceans, which gives new insights into local coastal and estuarine systems like the St. Johns River.
The presenter, Scott C. Hagen, received his Ph.D. in 1998 from the University of Notre Dame, where he studied under Joannes J. Westerink. Dr. Hagen is presently an Associate Professor of Civil Engineering at the University of Central Florida and is a registered Professional Engineer with the State of Florida. At UCF he has established a nationally- and internationally-recognized lab for coastal hydroscience analysis, modeling and predictive simulations. Currently, much of the research that Dr. Hagen and his students pursue is grounded in astronomic and meteorologic tidal modeling, including hurricane storm surge simulations and tidal flow analyses. Scott serves on the ASCE Coasts, Oceans, Ports and Rivers Institute Wetland & Sediment Management Committee, chairing the subcommittee on Coastal and River Modeling.
