RSMAS Beat

The Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science announced its newest faculty member, Guoqing Lin, on Friday. Lin will be joining RSMAS as an assistant professor in the Marine Geology and Geophysics division. She brings broad expertise in earthquake relocation, seismic tomography and waveform cross-correlation that will benefit the work being done in her department. Lin is well-known for designing software used throughout the scientific community that gathers more accurate earthquake data.

For over 30 years, scientists have relied on a series of equations called International Equation of State of Seawater, or EOS-80. RSMAS professor Frank Millero was part of the original committee that established EOS-80, and he is now helping scientists redefine this “Equation of State” in order to incorporate more accurate representations or seawater measurements and algorithms.

RSMAS hosted the final round of the Miami Regional “Manatee Bowl” on Saturday evening. Over 100 local high school students competed for a spot in the 12th annual National Ocean Sciences Bowl that will be held at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History’s Ocean Hall in Washington, D.C. in late April. Students were tested through quick-buzzer questions on their knowledge of marine science.
