The USGS - Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center (WHCMSC) conducts a wide range of interdisciplinary research activities in marine, estuarine, lacustrine, and terrestrial regions of the United States, including the Atlantic Ocean, Pacific Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, the Arctic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, Great Lakes, and Alaskan North Slope, as well as international locations (e.g., South America and Europe). The research addresses geological issues of local, regional, national, and global concern, such as energy resources, natural hazards, climate change, environmental quality and health, and information management.
The USGS Coastal Change Hazards Project, which is led by senior staff at both the WHCMSC and the PCMSC, requires a technical computing scientist to implement, test, and evaluate numerical algorithms using modern programming skills into high-performance computational programs. These programs simulate atmospheric, oceanographic, and coastal sediment morphological changes to the environment. Results are used by scientists to understand issues related to climate change, impacts of storms, and aggregate resource management.
