Most of the damage from Hurricane Sandy is expected to come from the storm surge, explains Marc Perlin, a professor of ocean engineering at the University of Michigan. To understand what a storm surge is, imagine blowing air onto a plate of water. As the air crossed the surface, it would push the water and pile it up on the far end.
The University of Michigan is a charter member of The Naval Engineering Education Center (NEEC). NEEC is a joint educational initiative between the United States Navy, and a consortium of 15 educational institutions in the United States. It's mission is to engage and develop the next generation of civilian engineers through project-based education, collaboration, and curriculum experience leading to civilian career opportunities with the U.S. Navy.
