Abstract : The goal of the AASERT grants was to provide support of graduate students to augment existing ONR Programs. The AASERT grant was provided to augment N00014-91-J-1560 in the CORE program. The AASERT fellow is Mr. John H. Holdzkom II who is pursuing a Ph.D. in oceanography at the Center for Coastal Physical Oceanography. He came into the program with a B.S. (with honors) in physics from Old Dominion University. This progress has been excellent. Mr. Holdzkom has worked on both the core grant and the ARI (N00014-93-10567). He has made two presentations at national and international meetings, is a co-author of 'An Investigation of the Ability of Nonlinear Methods to Infer Dynamics from Observables' (Tsonis et al., Bull Am. Meteor. Soc., 1994), and the senior author of 'A comparison of a Hydrodynamic Lens Model to Observations of a Warm Core Ring' which is under review with the Journal of Geophysical Research. Currently the bulk of this effort is devote to the ARI. It is anticipated that he will use this model as part of his dissertation.
