C. F. Scott, PhD, MSc, Dip Comp, BSc(Hons). Former academic, retired 2010. BSc(Honours, Applied Mathematics), University of Western Australia. MSc(Physical Oceanography), University of Melbourne. Graduate Diploma in Computing, Curtin University. PhD(Physical Oceanography), University of Western Australia. Eight years experience with the Department of Marine and Harbours, Western Australia, involved in the development of real-time hydrographic survey systems and the use of mathematical and computer techniques in the design of coastal structures, bathymetric surveying and wave and tide analyses. One year as Research Scientist with the Victorian Institute of Marine Sciences, Melbourne, Australia, involved with numerical modelling of marine systems. One year at CSIRO Division of Oceanography, Hobart, Australia, involved in numerical estuarine and ocean modelling. Two years at the Department of Mathematical Sciences, Loughborough University, United Kingdom, developing mathematical and numerical models of circulation and dispersion in estuaries. Lecturer in Fluid Mechanics, Department of Civil Engineering, Loughborough University, 1995-2010. Visiting Scientist at the Waterways Experiment Station, Mississippi, USA; the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, Gloucester Point, Virginia; the Marine Sciences Research Center at the State University of New York, Stony Brook; and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Contributed to refereed scientific publications on tidal mixing fronts, estuarine circulation, surface tension modelling and technical reports in the areas of hydrographic surveying, coastal engineering design of offshore structures and the physical marine environmental effects of proposed engineering works.
