Also, Professor Kalon Morris continues to work on modifications to the pool bottom and bithymetry to facilitate optimum wave breaking characteristics in full scale.
07/28/03: Professor of Marine Science at Saddleback College and Research Scientist at Scripps Institute, Kalon Morris, recently visited Surf City Texas' scale model wave pool to compile data for computer modeling the wave pool, at full scale, and just published his findings.
Read the letter.
Professor Kalon Morris made a trip to Galveston over the weekend to compile data and study the results of both the wave cannon technology and our pool design.
Professor Morris has agreed to computer model the design for us to verify results associated with the scaled up prototype.
Professor Morris arrives tonight to assist in full scale computer modeling to determine the scale up wave characteristics, as well as any remaining water flow problems that exist.
Fluid dynamics specialist and professor, Kalon Morris, has joined our design team to study wave and water flow elements of our pool design and cannon technology.
Professor Morris is a graduate of Harvard University, currently teaching physical oceanography at Saddleback College, and receiving his PhD in two weeks in Oceanography from Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego.
Professor Morris is due to arrive next week.
is an avid surfer and we are excited to have him on our team!
