Sergio deRada , PhD

Sergio deRada is an NRL scientist with over ten years of numerical modeling experience working with biological, optical, and physical oceanographic and atmospheric models, including the Princeton Ocean Model (POM), the Navy Coastal Ocean Model (NCOM), the Hybrid Coordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM), and the Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Mesoscale Prediction System (COAMPS). deRada is involved in transitioning research products to operations and developing end-user tools for decision making and analysis of scientific data. deRada implemented the Gulf of Mexico Modeling System (GOMMS), a data-assimilative bio-optical-physical ocean model, which currently runs in real-time and is used to support various projects, including GoMRI funded research.
