Sandro Carniel is a Senior Scientist (Oceanographer) at CNR-ISMAR, Venice, where he joined in 1999. His fields of interest are mainly related to physical oceanography and air-sea interactions, testing, and developing different hierarchies of integrated oceanic numerical models (1-2-3 D), coupled with meteorological, wave, and sediment transport models, with a special interest in coastal environments. Besides a solid background in numerical modeling, Carniel, Ph.D., actively participated in several research cruises where he acted as Scientist in Charge, dealing with turbulence measurements, seismic oceanography, and real-time modeling. He was awarded the Naval Research Laboratory Command Coin (2006) and the International Prize “Venezia per il mare” (1996); he is Member of the American Geophysical Union (AGU), the European Geophysical Union (EGU), and The Oceanography Society (TOS). He acts as International Reviewer for European funding agencies, sitting in the Editorial Board of three international journals, and has served as Reviewer for more than 25 international journals. He has been P.I. and co-P.I. in several national and international projects, such as the U.S. Office of Naval Research funded project (NICOP), the FIRB project “DECALOGO” (Min. Univ. Italy), the EU funded projects FIELD_AC, CoCoNET, and F-ECTS. He acted as Convener and Program Chairman in several international conferences (EGU in 2012, 2013, and 2014, several ROMS conferences), giving invited talks in the field of integrated coastal numerical models (CIESM and MATHOCEAN in 2010, European Environmental Agency in 2011, and for the Ministry of Education of Spain in 2012). He authored and coauthored more than 60 publications in ISI Journals (837 citations, h-index 17); 1 international patent; 1 book; 3 chapters in books; 11 articles in books; more than 160 refereed articles in international journals, proceedings, and abstracts.
