Chair, Acoustical Oceanography Technical Committee
Dr. Colosi is currently a Professor at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, CA. He joined NPS in 2006 after serving as a tenured Associate Scientist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Throughout his career he has been on numerous oceanographic cruises, and published a substantial number of refereed articles, and a book titled Sound Propagation through the Stochastic Ocean. He also currently teaches courses at NPS on wave propagation through random media and ocean waves and geophysical fluid dynamics.
Dr. Colosi’s research is in the area of acoustical oceanography, and wave propagation through random media. He has applied the study of tides and internal waves to the modelling of sound propagation in the ocean, and participated in several seminal long range underwater acoustic propagation experiments.
