••Abstract••
Major ocean currents can generate hazardous cross-currents near some ports. At the south Florida ports of Miami, Everglades, and Palm Beach, high cross-currents occur irregularly. Cross-currents can persist for hours to days as meanders in the Florida Current / Gulf Stream shift its position westward onto the port access channels. The technical webinar will overview the initial results of a prototype machine learning algorithm being developed to predict the probability of high cross-currents near Port of Miami.

••Presenters Bios••
Dr. Steven D. Meyers is the Chief Scientist at the Center for Maritime and Port Studies at the University of South Florida College of Marine Science (USF CMS). He has over 20 years experience working with estuarine circulation models, climate variability, advanced data analysis, and more recently, artificial intelligence and machine learning. His work focuses on solving problems related to maritime operations, coastal infrastructure, and estuarine management. Before joining USF he was the Associate Director for Oceanography at the Center for Ocean-Atmosphere Prediction Studies at Florida State University. Dr. Meyers received his Ph.D. in physics from the University of Texas at Austin in 1990.

Mark E. Luther received his doctoral degree in Physical Oceanography from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1982. Dr. Luther is an Associate Professor and director of the Center for Maritime and Port Studies in the University of South Florida College of Marine Science. He has worked in real-time ocean observing systems since 1993 and was involved in planning and implementation of the US Integrated Ocean Observing System from its inception (https://ioos.noaa.gov/). He works closely with the Tampa Port Authority, the Tampa Bay Pilots, US Coast Guard, and other maritime interests on environmental issues affecting and affected by maritime transportation operations and infrastructure.
