Coastal Scientist / Modeler
Company: Lynker Corporation
Posted on: January 26, 2023
The Coastal Scientist / Modeler selected, -will be a part of a
team of scientists and engineers working on real-time inland and
coastal hydrodynamic/hydrologic forecasting. Lynker is currently
supporting research and development modeling activities focused on
coupling freshwater model applications to ocean models. NOAA's NWM
is the foundation for nationally consistent operational hydro
forecasting and source of inland hydrologic information. Lynker
staff is developing demonstration code and associated documentation
to couple the National Water Model (NWM) to the NOAA operational
ocean forecast system ESTOFS (Extratropical Surge and Tide
Operational Forecast System) and are exploring the feasibility for
using NOAA Environmental Modeling System for a unified model
coupling in the Coastal Zone.
Daily activities of the Coastal Scientist / Modeler -will include
research and development for coastal modeling applications;
collaboration with scientific experts and stakeholders to identify
gaps and weaknesses in existing modeling methods; and geoprocessing
and algorithm development (i.e. programming) for automated
workflows for processing model input/output data.
The Coastal Scientist / Modeler selcted should have the
- Graduate-level education/training (or equivalent experience) in
hydrodynamic/hydrologic science and geospatial science, coastal
hydrodynamic modeling, and process-automation programming using
Python, R or similar languages
- Comprehensive knowledge of saltwater physical processes (ocean
hydrodynamics, waves, wind, surge, tides, etc.)
- Knowledge of hydrodynamic/hydrologic geospatial data processing
of hydrography and bathymetry datasets
- Knowledge and experience using hydrologic and hydrodynamics
modeling applications (familiarity with unstructured models is a
significant plus .e.g. ADCIRC/SCHISM/FVCOM/ROMS)
- Experience in numerical model development and
- Experience with ESRI GIS applications and tools for processing
large data sets used in hydrologic/hydraulic analysis
- Experience working in Linux environment
