Dr. Amy Baco-Taylor

EOAS Associate Professor Dr. Amy Baco-Taylor, in collaboration with a team from Texas A&M University, discovered an odd chain of reefs that suggests there are mysteries about the development and durability of coral colonies yet to be discovered. In an article published in the journal Scientific Reports, the team discuss possible explanations for the reef’s appearance in areas considered impossibly hostile to reef formation.

Dr. Kevin Speer

For fifty years, the FSU Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Institute (GFDI) has been a global leader in the study of fluid flow and motion. EOAS Professor and GFDI Director Kevin Speer says many insights are still being derived from experiments conducted on the “big table” - a table that simulates the effects of the Earth’s rotation on the movement and circulation of large-scale planetary waves.

NASA CPEX Campaign

Dr. Ryan Honeyager and doctoral candidate Sweta Das are currently participating in the NASA CPEX Field Campaign collecting data on convective storm initiation, organization, growth, and dissipation in the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic and Caribbean. NASA’s DC-8 aircraft will log 100 hours of flight time for this mission.  Dr. Krishnamurti and Dr. Guosheng Liu are also participating in this campaign. For photos, check out their Flickr album.
