To know how sediment moves in an estuary, you have to know how the water flows — the tides, the currents. Using computer models to understand that motion can be time-consuming and costly. Which is why Salme Cook, an oceanography Ph.D. student in the UNH School of Marine Science and Ocean Engineering, considers it a gift to have received a Blue Waters graduate fellowship granting her access to one of the fastest computers in the world.
