Bruce Howe

Bruce M. Howe received the BS degree in mechanical engineering and the MS degree in
engineering science in 1978 from Stanford University, and the PhD degree in oceanography in 1986 from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego.

While at Stanford Dr. Howe developed laser doppler velocimetry (LDV) instrumentation for air-sea interaction experiments. From 1979 to 1981, he was a Research Associate at the Institut für Hydromechanik, Universität Karlsruhe, working on LDVs for use in the atmospheric boundary layer. While at Scripps and since then he has worked on ocean acoustic tomography, most recently on the Acoustic Thermometry of Ocean Climate (ATOC) project. A current interest is cabled seafloor observatories, specifically the NEPTUNE project focused on the Juan de Fuca Plate. He is presently a Principal Oceanographer at the Applied Physics Laboratory and a Research Associate Professor in the School of Oceanography, both at the University of Washington, Seattle. More >>
