Tandon Team were a part of the champions cohort in the recently concluded NASA Openscapes program over the Spring 2022. This program is led remotely and is designed to ignite incremental and sustainable change within research groups — and beyond. Discussions focus around collaborative mindsets, norms, and software to enable open, reproducible, inclusive research, introducing tools like R, tidyverse, RMarkdown, GitHub, Google Drive, and Twitter and practices from open source communities. This year’s theme was also concentrated on using NASA Earthdata and transitioning workflows to the Cloud.
NASA Openscapes Champions Cohort 2022
Participating members include Profs Tandon and Buckingham, Suraj, Valentina, Iury, Filipe, Sid and Ersen’S.
Tandon lab had a strong presence in the 26th annual Sigma Xi research exhibit held at Claire T. Carney Library, UMass Dartmouth in April 2022, with 6 members presenting and a second-place winner.
Iury presented his work on the atmospheric cold pools in the Bay of Bengal, Alan talked about the resonance in mooring lines due to vortex shedding, Ersen’s presented his REU project on Satellite imagery and Numerical modeling in the Bay of Bengal, Patrick demonstrating the in-house developed Aurelia profiler and Sid presented his results on Diurnal Warm Layers. Filipe showed his work from the baroclinically unstable meander in the South Atlantic and its ecological implications and was announced as the second best poster in the exhibit.

We are delighted to announce that iury (currently a Ph.D. candidate from our group) will join the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution this summer for the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics School. The theme for this year (Data-driven GFD) is a cutting-edge topic for both theory and oceanographic data analysis. If you want to know more about iury’s work, check out his website!
