MV4030 Modeling and Simulation in Ocean Environments

This course focuses on modeling and simulation (M&S) issues in ocean environments. While virtual environments (VEs) serve as M&S tools, the design of effective VE systems needs realistic physical environments. This course will cover the basic physics of ocean environments, visualization of the ocean from satellites, visualization of the ocean from Navy METOC model output, METOC information flow in M&S, the impact of the environment on human behavior, and physically-based modeling. Prerequisites: None.
