Andrea Cucco


Summary

Andrea Cucco is a scientist in physical oceanography at the Institute of Coastal Marine Environment of the Italian National Research Council. He is focused on numerical modeling and, specifically, on the development and application of hydrodynamic and environmental models based on the finite elements methods. His research activity and scientific production is highly interdisciplinary and related to several aspects of the oceanography including the reproduction of the sea currents and wind waves in coastal and near-shore areas, the transport and diffusion processes occurring at the sea surface as well the interactions between the physical environment and the marine ecosystem. He is involved in several research initiatives aimed to predict the risk and the danger coming from the potential and accidental release of hydrocarbons in the marine environment. PhD in Marine Environmental Science at Ca’ Foscari University in Venice, Member of IAPSO from 2016.
