The Coastal Fluid Dynamics Lab (CFDL) is a research facility of Department of Marine, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences (MEAS), North Carolina State University (NCSU). It is located at 1142 Jordan Hall on NCSU's Central Campus.
Scientists and graduate students at CFDL conduct basic and applied research on coastal atmospheric and oceanic systems including: air-sea coupling; estuary circulation and plumes; impact of hurricanes on coastal ocean; storm surge, waves and tides; Gulf Stream and shelf fronts; data assimilation; trajectory and dispersion modelling; landfalling hurricanes; El Nino and impact on coastal region; high-performance computing and scientific visualization.
Funding for the research activities of CFDL are provided by the National Science Foundation; Office of Naval Research; National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration; Department of Energy; Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation; IBM Environmental Research Program; and NCSU International Programs.
