The mission of the CHAMPS Lab is to educate and train tomorrow’s engineers, scientists and educators, while meeting the coastal hydroscience challenges of today. Our primary research goal is to incorporate the physical system and associated processes into our computer modeling and simulation approach in order to better analyze and understand coastal hydroscience.   This begins with our production of an accurate and efficient astronomic tidal model for the Western North Atlantic Tidal model domain (displayed below) that can be used as a basis for more localized models, or to simply provide tidal boundary conditions for a shelf-based model.
