2016 William Randolph Church Award

An award is presented annually in honor of Prof. Warren Randolph Church, former chairman of the Mathematics Department.  This award was first presented in June 1972 and is administered through the Faculty Scholarship Committee and the Department of Applied Mathematics.  It is presented to a student at the June Pre-Graduation Awards Ceremony in recognition of outstanding performance in mathematical courses. This year's recipient is CPT Ryan Miller, who is now an instructor at the United States Military Academy West Point

NUMO Ocean Model Mentioned in Nature Article

NUMO Ocean Model Mentioned in Nature Article

Through funding from the Department of Energy, Prof. Frank Giraldo in Applied Mathematics, Prof. Wieslaw Maslowski in Oceanography and Dr. Michal Kopera at the University of California - Santa Cruz are developing a nonhydrostatic ocean model for simulating narrow fjords around Greenland.

The NUMO model has already garnered much attention from the climate sciences and ocean modeling communities as is evident by its being mentioned in the following Nature article.  For more information see the NUMO website.
