Dr. Cathrine Hancock

Dr. Cathrine Hancock received her Ph.D. in Physical Oceanography from the Florida State University (FSU) and a master’s degree from the Department of Geophysics, Meteorology and Oceanography at the University of Bergen (Norway). She has worked at FSU since 2012, with specific focus on acoustically tracking subsurface RAFOS and RAFOS-enabled ARGO floats in the Gulf of Mexico, Southern Ocean and Weddell Sea. These trajectories are used to better understand subsurface mesoscale flow, by calculating Lagrangian statistics along with dispersion and diffusivity estimates.
