PUBLIC OUTREACH : Many demonstrations at the New Bedford Waterfront Festival (2008-Present).,and with the New Bedford Ocean Explorium (closed 2015). Tandon and students have demonstrated many concepts about atmosphere and ocean flows using the rotating tank which they setup “live” at the Waterfront over the past many years. Demonstrations to High school student groups at the High School Marine Science Symposium organized by the Massachusetts Marine Educators, each year, 2002-2014.
Other Public Outreach, University Service, Honors during 1983-2014 are omitted for brevity, available on request.
