Data Visualization

Tuesday, Septempber 6, 2016   |   Noon - 1PM   |   Alvin Sherman Library Room 2053 (& Online)
Presented by Dr. Matt Johnston, DEEPEND Data Manager 

In this session, data visualization will be presented in the context of modeling marine invasive species such as the lionfish, exploring the deep pelagic ocean, and analyzing the movement patterns of one of the oceans foremost apex predators, the mako shark. The marine environment is a complex seascape of bathymetry, water flow, and life. Unraveling physical and biological processes and ocean connectivity can be aided by the use of data visualization to detect and depict patterns otherwise hidden in raw numbers. 

Matthew Johnston, Ph.D., is a research scientist at the Halmos College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography.  Dr. Johnston’s research focuses on agent-based computer models that couple biological traits of marine organisms, such as their breeding strategy, with physical ocean characteristics in their environment, such as water circulation, to deliver forecasts of ‘source’ and ‘sink’ populations.  Continued work focuses on understanding the biophysical interactions that that drive marine and terrestrial invasions globally as well as generational connectivity patterns of native species.  Website http://www.nova.edu/~johnmatt
